Debbie Mucarsel-Powell Slams Rick Scott For Plan To Raise Taxes On Over 40% Of Floridians

In 2022, Rick Scott Launched His Plan To Raise Taxes on Middle Class Families And Push Millions Into Poverty

Rick Scott Supported Trump’s 2017 Tax Plan, Which Overwhelmingly Benefited The Richest Americans And Corporations – Including Scott Himself

Miami, FL – During his time in the U.S. Senate, Rick Scott introduced one of the most extreme tax plans in the chamber’s history, which proposed raising taxes on more than half the population – including over 40% of Floridians – and directly targeted lower-income households, retirees, and active-duty military.

“As a proud immigrant who worked her way up from a minimum wage job to serving in Congress, I know what it means to work hard every day for what you have. Unlike Rick Scott, I’m fighting to protect and expand economic opportunities for Floridians,” said Debbie Mucarsel-Powell. “Rick Scott – the richest member of the U.S. Senate – single-handedly wrote the plan to raise taxes on the middle class while increasing his own personal wealth by nearly $50 million. Self-serving millionaires like Scott are on the side of their ultra wealthy allies who pay to play, not Florida’s hardworking families. Rick Scott is a direct threat to the Florida we know, and if re-elected, we will be the ones to pay the price.”
