Following the latest Consumer Price Index (CPI) release from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Senator Rick Scott released the below statement highlighting the need to implement substantive fiscal reforms to end the ongoing inflation crisis fueled by the Biden administration’s reckless tax-and-spend agenda. October’s CPI data shows that there has been significant inflation nearly every month of Biden’s presidency, increasing 7.7% in October.

Senator Rick Scott said, “As Americans begin holiday preparations, Joe Biden’s raging inflation crisis is set to crush spirits for the second year in a row. For nearly two years, families in Florida and across the country have been dealing with rising prices and Biden has done NOTHING to fix it. He and Congressional Democrats created this devastating crisis with their endless demand for reckless spending and they must answer for it. Growing up, my family lived in public housing and had to fight tooth and nail every month just to get by. Too many families in America are now living that same struggle and it appears that things will only get worse. Unemployment is rising, prices continue to skyrocket and we could face a critical shortage of fuel and heating oil this winter. That’s the America that Joe Biden’s reckless, failed agenda has created and I won’t rest until we force change that puts American families first. It’s time to end the madness and demand fiscal responsibility that will finally end this national nightmare. Enough is enough.”

Sen. Rick Scott: Floridians Should Get Prepared for Potential Impacts of Subtropical Storm Nicole

Following a call with National Weather Service Director Ken Graham, Senator Rick Scott released the following statement urging Floridians to stay alert and get prepared this weekend as the state monitors the path of Subtropical Storm Nicole, which the National Hurricane Center (NHC) forecasts to possibly become a tropical storm that could impact Florida as early as Wednesday, November 9.

Senator Rick Scott said, “Every Floridian must take Subtropical Storm Nicole seriously. We know how quickly severe weather can intensify, and although landfall is expected a few days from now, this storm is moving quickly and cannot be ignored. Today, I spoke with Ken Graham, the Director of the U.S. National Weather Service, and my team and I are in contact with local and state officials to make sure Florida is ready. The storm has the potential to bring strong winds and dangerous storm surge. Remember: preparedness saves lives. Our state is resilient because Floridians know how to prepare, and now is the time for every family to make sure they have a plan, gas in their vehicles and seven days of emergency supplies, food and medication. Do not wait—prepare today.”
