“If you watch what they’re talking about with that – name whatever the bill is – all it’s going to do is cause more inflation,” he said. “Look what it does to poor families in this country, with gasoline prices up 55%. Go to the grocery store, food prices are on the rise. Everything is caused by government spending. And by the way, if you look at inflation, the border, parent involvement in schools, our military support, there is nothing Democrats are talking about doing that solves an issue that is of concern to Americans.

“Solve it, fix it. They have no fix in this administration,” he added. “They’re like commentators, ‘Yeah, we’re gonna have a problem until next year.’ No, go solve the problem. “

Scott explained that he voted against the bipartisan infrastructure bill, another part of Biden’s platform that was passed by the Senate with the help of 19 Republicans because he was not fully paid and did not do enough to improve the actual infrastructure.

“You present me with an invoice that will be paid for roads, bridges, airports and seaports, I am very interested in doing something like that,” he said. “But I’m not going to bankrupt this country. This country has nearly $ 30 trillion in debt. This bill alone was a quarter of a trillion dollars in debt. It must end. It causes. inflation. I mean, it hurts the poorest families, it doesn’t hurt the rich. It hurts families like mine who have grown up and had to struggle to put food on the table with this ridiculous inflation. Solve that.

“We have to live within our means, as every family does,” he added. “The amount of waste is staggering. Americans should be furious with the way the money is spent in the Senate and throughout Congress.”
