NO SURPRISE: Rick Scott Backs Raising Healthcare Costs, Shipping Jobs Overseas, & Rewarding Tax Cheats

Mar 10, 2023

Today, Rick Scott took it upon himself to back a budget that would defund law enforcement, ship jobs overseas, explode the deficit, and make healthcare more expensive — all so that Republicans can pass another tax break for the ultra-wealthy. This is on top of his own epic failure of a plan that he rolled out last year that would hike taxes for seniors and more than half of Americans and “[sunset] Social Security and Medicare within five years.” 

Scott, who is up for reelection in 2024, said “I fully support the House Freedom Caucus proposal” despite the drastic cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and other vital programs.
