Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) has released another critique of President Joe Biden (D) and his administration following the latest economic numbers that have been released.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) provided the recent Consumer Price Index (CPI) figures for July.

Those figures revealed a 3.2 percent rise in inflation over the year in July and a 16.8 percent increase since President Biden took office in January of 2021.

Sen. Scott believes that the White House’s approach to the economy – “Bidenomics” – is hurting Floridians and their businesses.

“The Biden administration continues to hurt Florida families and businesses with its backward ‘Bidenomics’ policies without any plan to fix it. This week, I have been traveling Florida to hear what issues families are facing, and in each big city or small town I stop in one thing keeps getting mentioned—inflation,” said Sen. Scott. “Folks all over Florida are struggling thanks to President Biden’s reckless tax-and-spend agenda. I continue to hear from parents who are having to make tough choices between gas and groceries, or our seniors having to come out of retirement to get another job—that is a scary reality for Floridians and it is unacceptable Biden has let it go this far.”

Moreover, Sen. Scott mentioned fighting Washington, DC’s “broken status quo” and “reckless spending” as the method to fighting the high inflation numbers and helping Floridians stay afloat.

“Folks in Florida have struggled for over two years with Biden’s inflation crisis that just continues to skyrocket out of control and I’m fighting like hell in Washington to end the broken status quo and put an end to it. I will never stop fighting to make Washington work for the hardworking Floridians who are trying their best to make ends meet and take care of their families. We have to stop Washington’s reckless spending and get our house in order,” stated Scott.

According to the BLS, over the year, prices of household items have risen significantly, including flour (+8.5 percent), bread (+9.5 percent), pet food (+10.6 percent), rent (+8 percent), sugar (+8.9 percent), and margarine (+11.3 percent).
