Republican Senator Rick Scott of Florida is saying what few have the guts to utter: Many Democrats hate this country and are actively trying to destroy it. All Democrats? No. But enough to make it standard party policy. They must be stopped for the sake of family, faith, and freedom. Scott explains.
I’ve been saying it for MONTHS. Reckless government spending = raging inflation.
Higher prices are devastating for hardworking Floridians, especially low & fixed-income families like mine growing up. I won’t stop fighting Biden’s inflation-fueling, socialist agenda. pic.twitter.com/G5dFU1SupW

MORE NEWS: Republicans Beating Media At Their Own Game
Scott: I said in March there was going to be a lot of buyer’s remorse when voters saw what Joe Biden and the Democrats were up to with total control of Washington. That was an understatement.
In a recent survey from USA Today and Suffolk University, 46% of voters said Biden has done a worse job as president than they expected. That included 16% of those who voted for him. And in a survey released last week by ABC News and the Washington Post, Republicans held a 10-point advantage in the generic congressional ballot, the largest margin in the 40-year history of the poll.
Here’s what should really scare Democrats vying to maintain control of the majority in the U.S. Senate: in the states that will decide the majority (Arizona, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), Republicans hold a 23-POINT LEAD in the generic ballot. These numbers are consistent with polling we at the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) have done that shows voters across the board rejecting the Democrats’ agenda.
It’s not hard to explain why Biden and the Democrats are reeling politically. They misread the 2020 election. Biden and the Democrats thought they had a mandate to fundamentally change America. They’re pushing for a massive expansion of the welfare state; a massive increase in federal spending, taxes and debt; a radical social agenda; a federal takeover of elections; amnesty and open borders; and a weak foreign policy that embarrasses us on the world stage.
The results: record inflation that’s causing the prices of everyday goods to skyrocket, record illegal immigration, record debt, and 13 dead Americans in Afghanistan. Glenn Youngkin’s win in Virginia – along with big wins by Republicans down ballot in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York and Texas – should have been a wakeup call for Democrats.
We saw, in a post-election poll in Virginia conducted by the NRSC and the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA), that voters strongly believe the country is heading down the wrong track. Voters know that the Democrats’ big government agenda and record federal spending is causing inflation and making it more difficult to afford basic goods. They know that schools should be teaching reading, writing and arithmetic, not trying to indoctrinate our students with a radical curriculum like critical race theory.
Instead, Democrats are doubling down. They’re redoubling their efforts to pass an agenda that voters are fundamentally rejecting. If the election were held today, it would be a wipeout. But it’s not. The election will be held a little less than a year from now. Which means now is not the time to pump the brakes. It’s time to keep our foot on the gas. The American people need to know that the Democrats are actively and purposefully trying to destroy our country.
