With 2022 coming to a close and everyone, including politicians, are  looking back on the year they had, as well as the year that others have had. Usually, Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) offers his weekly update on the inflation crisis, but now that we can assess how the United States has changed in the two years with President Joe Biden (D) behind the Resolute Desk, Sen. Scott is offering his analysis for that timespan as a whole.

According to the Consumer Price Index (CPI), inflation has risen 13.9% since the President has taken office. Scott says that with the enormous amount of money being flown around (such as the $1.7 trillion omnibus spending bill), he will continue to try and “rein in Washington’s spending.”

“Thanks to President Biden’s reckless spending and radical, woke policy, inflation is up nearly 14% since he took office. We know that Biden’s inflation is fueled by reckless Pelosi-Schumer spending bills, like the gross $1.7 TRILLION omnibus that just passed, and in 2023 Republicans must start being a BRICK WALL against more spending, more debt and more of Biden’s woke agenda. America’s poorest families, like mine growing up, struggle with any rise in prices. That’s reason enough to rein in Washington’s spending, but the massive price hikes we’ve seen thanks to Biden’s inflation have spread this pain to nearly every family in America,” stated Scott in his review of the President.

However, despite the disconcerting news, Sen. Scott says that he will continue to fight for Floridians.

“It’s clear that failed politicians in Congress and useless bureaucrats in the Biden administration have forgotten that government works for the people. It’s time for a reality check. In 2023, I’m going to fight like hell to hold the line on the debt ceiling and secure significant spending reforms that work to stop Biden’s reckless agenda that’s hurting too many American families. I will never stop fighting for Floridians, and I won’t stop fighting the irresponsible policies that kill our economy and fuel this crisis. The status quo cannot go on – big change is coming to Washington,” concluded Scott.

With what some might describe as a soon-to-be wide open Republican primary (depending on who jumps in of course), it is possible that the Sunshine State could see three Floridians making a run to change their address to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave (DeSantis, Scott, and Rubio).

Only time will tell.
