Florida Politics reports:
Sen. Rick Scott released a television ad promoting an 11-point Republican agenda for the midterms. The chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, he’s pushed the plan on the Rescue America website. “Our borders are being invaded, inflation is raging and our shelves are empty,” Scott says in narration.
“Crime is rampant. Police are being killed, and God-fearing people are being silenced.” The plan stokes culture wars on abortion and anti-LGBTQ stances, quoting the Bible and making a case for a heartbeat bill.
The ad can be watched online now and will begin airing on television airways nationwide on Friday. Paid for by Scott’s own PAC, Scott for Florida, he said the ad is backed by a seven-figure national TV and digital buy.

Republican leader Rick Scott just introduced a 2022 GOP platform that calls for RAISING taxes on “over half of Americans,” including seniors.
This is the same Republican Party that passed permanent tax cuts for the wealthiest and corporations.

Rick Scott, the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, put out an agenda for Republicans to run on that includes requiring “all Americans” — including low-income families and the elderly — to pay income taxes.
That means raising taxes on 100+ million Americans.

New on the 11-point plan: Rick Scott’s campaign tells me this would also apply to the 2030 census, meaning that there would be no data at all on the racial makeup of the US.https://t.co/vo6NRRVEty

NEW: Rick Scott just went on Fox to defend the new GOP 2022 platform that calls for raising taxes on the middle class and seniors — he claimed that “of course” he didn’t call to raise taxes. His plan specifically calls for raising income taxes on “over half of Americans.”

Let’s remember: Rick Scott refused to expand Medicaid, denying health care to about 800,000 Floridians. Now, he’s promising higher taxes for middle-class and working-class families.
The choice is clear in this election. https://t.co/eEbJfFF5Ob
