Florida Republican Sen. Rick Scott said Friday that rising inflation will not slow down the “staggering” amount of taxpayer dollars that Democrats are spending.
During an interview Friday morning with Brian Kilmeade on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” Scott said it’s important to look at what happened Thursday in the three-month debt ceiling extension.
“Democrats raised the debt ceiling to about $29.2 trillion, and think about this. They raised it by $480 billion, just for two months,” Scott said.
“That means they’re spending, what, $3 trillion more per year than we collect,” he said.
