Rick Scott on rising living costs in America

Despite ongoing discussions in Congress over the debt ceiling, rising costs of living continue to put a strain on the budgets of many Americans, including those in Florida and around the country. Following two years of President Biden's blazing inflation problem, Senator Scott outlined his proposals to reign in wasteful spending, unleash American energy, strengthen the U.S. economy, and reduce expenses for families in America.

He said that Washington must immediately begin reducing its $31 trillion debt and work toward stabilizing its budget. According to Senator Scott, the economy can see revival if the federal government pays down the debt, lowers tax burdens, and improves business growth by fostering an environment where local companies can thrive.

Senator Scott's concerns for the Cuban regime

Earlier in January, Republican U.S. Senators from Florida, Marco Rubio and Senator Scott wrote to State Department official Antony Blinken, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas. In this letter, he argued that discussion, rather than appeasing Cuba's oppressive and criminal regime, would be the best way to promote the political, social, and economic liberties of the Cuban people.

U.S. Department of State, Justice, and Homeland Security representatives met with members of the Cuban government in Havana to discuss "law enforcement" matters. This group featured Cuban Ministry of the Interior members, the agency most directly responsible for the widespread breaches of human rights suffered by the Cuban people.
