WHILE BIDEN WORKS TO LOWER COSTS FOR FAMILIES, GOP SAYS INFLATION IS A “GOLD MINE”

Sen. Rick Scott: Rising Costs for American Families are a “Gold Mine for Us

Republicans Refuse to Support the Build Back Better Act Which Experts Agree Will Ease Inflation

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Rising costs and inflation facing American families are a “gold mine” for the GOP, according to NRSC Chairman Sen. Rick Scott. Scott’s comments come as President Biden and leaders in Congress work to lower costs for American families by passing the Build Back Better Act — which not a single Republican supports despite economists and experts saying that the bill would ease inflation.

Invest in America Action’s senior advisor Zac Petkanas made the following statement: 

“When President Biden sees a problem facing American families, he works around the clock to fix it. When Rick Scott and the Republicans see a problem, they raise a glass to toast their political future.

“As always, Republicans would rather score political points than lift a finger to help the American people. Thankfully, leaders in Congress and the Biden administration are hard at work to pass the Build Back Better Act, which would actually lower costs for families.

“When President Biden delivers a once-in-a-generation piece of legislation that gives the middle class breathing room by cutting the cost of health care, child care, housing, education, and so much more, Americans can rest assured that Republicans had absolutely nothing to do with it.”
