Orlando, FL — Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fl.) absolutely destroyed Democrat’s requests for coronavirus aid in states like California and New York. He made the comments on the Senate floor as conversations were ongoing about continued coronavirus aid. Scott did not simply share an opinion but shared facts that Democrats cannot deny.
Scott shared how tax revenues were much higher in California and New York this year versus previous years. All the while, both states are complaining that they need coronavirus aid to survive.
In California, Scott cited that their tax revenue was $9.9 billion. He shared this was an 18.6% increase over projections. Personal income tax revenue in October was $1 billion, a significant increase over what was expected.
Scott then quickly countered that with the description of the corruption in California. He shared how the state paid $1.5 million to the chief investment officer of the state pension fund. He quickly was investing with the Chinese Communist Party.
In New York, Scott shared how the state had experienced almost a 5% increase in tax revenue in the month of September. While the tax revenue has increased, Governor Cuomo asked on Wednesday to increase taxes in the state due to spending deficits.
Scott then criticized both states for their small business crippling restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic. He shared the story about Nancy Pelosi and her salon visit, and Gavin Newsom and his dinner party he attended. He then shared the story about the Austin mayor, who encouraged everyone to stay home while he was at his timeshare in Mexico.
The Democrats and their coronavirus restrictions are not concerned at all with America. They are not concerned with American business or American livelihood. As Sen. Scott says, they are only concerned with themselves and their own finances.
As the Democrats continue to insist that aid is needed at the state and local government level, it’s clear to see what the real problem is. The problem is not the lack of tax revenues. The problem is Democrats and their spending.
Democrats need to learn fiscal responsibility. Every day they release some new ridiculous plan that involves trillions in spending, which we simply do not need. I fully agree with Sen. Scott’s comments, which you can watch in the video below.
