Rick Scott: “They call themselves progressive, these guys are regressive”


Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) appeared on Fox News to give his take on the latest 2020 Democratic presidential debate, saying that Democrats have gone “so far to the left” and “regressive.”

“They call themselves progressive, these guys are regressive,” said Scott.

Scott hit on all the issues 2020 Democrats are running on, calling them out for supporting “socialized medicine” and going after the “Green New Deal,” which he believes is “going to kill jobs.”
