 US Sen. Scott Blasts Biden's "Lies"

  • Executive, Flyover Country, The Hill

In Brief:
On Thursday, Sen. Rick Scott of Florida said that Biden is lying to the American people when he doesn’t take credit for the negative GDP and record-high inflation his policies have caused. Scott was responding to Biden’s remarks about the Senator’s plan to “rescue America” which includes 11 key points and 128 specific policy promises to voters. The US Gross Domestic Product (GDP), which is a key factor in measuring the health of the economy, went negative in the first quarter of 2022.

The Background:
Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) published an 11-point plan for Republicans to “rescue America” and push back on the historic failures of the Biden administration.

The plan outlines 11 areas that America must focus on to regain its footing, including education, color blind equality, safety and crime, and more.

President Biden came out against the plan saying that Scott wants to rescue America by “raising taxes on middle class families, including half of small business owners.” Scott responded saying that Biden’s remark sounds “desperate” and that Biden is lying to the American people.

“The numbers don’t lie. More bad news for hardworking families. Inflation: +8.5% ��
GDP: -1.4% �� @JoeBiden & his admin can keep lying about the economy, but Floridians know the true damage Biden’s reckless tax & spend agenda is causing,” Sen. Scott tweeted.

Scott went on to say that the American people “aren’t buying [Biden’s] lies.” The Biden administration has continued to blame record gas prices on the conflict in Ukraine and has failed to grapple with a rising wave of inflation that is squeezing Americans’ pocketbooks.

Notable Quotes:

“As long as Biden and the Democrats keep trying to destroy this great country, I’ll be fighting to rescue it. We’ll stop at nothing to hold Biden and the radical Left responsible for the disasters they’ve created.” - Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL)
