Two years ago, then-presidential candidate Biden promised his tax plan and fiscal agenda would not raise taxes on Americans making under $400,ooo per year.  Today, US Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) is asserting that the president has officially broken this promise.

After the release of the latest report from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT), Senator Scott claimed, "Democrats’ reckless tax-and-spend agenda will raise taxes on EVERY AMERICAN FAMILY."

"It’s never been a secret that Democrats want to raise taxes on hardworking American families, and now the non-partisan JCT has made clear just how disastrous their plans truly are," said Sen. Scott. "Families in Florida and across the country are already paying Biden’s raging incompetence tax as prices at the grocery store and the pump keep climbing, but that’s not enough for the radical Left—they want the Feds to get more of your money too."

During the Biden presidency, Scott has been one of the most vocal critics of the staggering inflation currently going underway, which he did not fail to leave out of his comments, "Tax increases are never the answer, but pushing higher taxes during a record-breaking inflation crisis is shameful and disgusting."  Said Scott, "I will NEVER support raising taxes and will fight this reckless tax-and-spend agenda with every tool at my disposal."

Scott's statements are not the first shots he has ever taken at President Biden (D).  In fact, Senator Scott arguably has the most intense feud with the president, going as far as to call him, "incoherent, incapacitated and confused."  The comments even got a reaction out of Biden himself saying, "The man has a problem."
