Senator Rick Scott (R-FL) provided his thoughts surrounding the latest inflation numbers that have been released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Addressing the ongoing “Bidenflation,” Sen. Scott commented on the BLS’s key inflation indicators, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) and the Producer Price Index (PPI). CPI inflation has risen 17.7% and PPI inflation has risen 18.4%.
The Florida senator said, “We are again reminded of the burden of the Biden administration’s failed policies” after mentioning the horrible terrorist attacks on Israel, committed by Hamas.
“This was another dark week for our country. Beyond our borders, we watched in horror as brutal, Iran-backed terrorists savagely attacked America’s great ally, Israel, taking the lives of at least 27 Americans and more than 1,300 Israelis. Meanwhile, here at home, we were again reminded of the burden that the Biden administration’s failed policies and raging inflation are placing on every American family,” stated Sen. Scott.
He would go on to bring up how Florida is affected by President Joe Biden’s (D) policies.
“In Florida, Bidenflation is costing hardworking families $1,084 extra every month, making it harder for folks to keep up and near impossible for them to get ahead. Families in my state feel less safe, less financially secure and less confident in the direction of our nation. America is headed in the wrong direction and we must turn it around NOW,” demanded Scott.
The senator ended his statement with the notion that when the upper chamber returns to D.C., it must show “strength and stability.”
“As the Senate returns to Washington, I will be fighting to make sure our focus stays on fixing these problems by immediately providing needed military aid to Israel, and getting back to the important work of responsibly funding our government. America must show strength and stability and that is the best way to do it at the critical moment,” concluded Scott.
Earlier this week, after the horrifying terrorist attack in Israel committed by Hamas which left nearly 1,000 Israelis dead and thousands wounded, a worker’s union for Starbucks – known as Starbucks Workers United – shared their support for Palestine (which is backed by Hamas). Senator Scott has called for a boycott of the store until the corporation denounces the terrorist organization.
