“Republican Senator Rick Scott of Florida, who chairs the National Republican Senatorial Committee, doubled down on his pledge to raise most Americans’ taxes if the GOP retakes the Senate in this year’s midterms.

Scott gleefully justified his proposal to Laura Ingraham on Monday night.

Last month, he unveiled a plan that stipulating that, “All Americans should pay some income tax to have skin in the game, even if a small amount. Currently over half of Americans pay no income tax.”

When asked on Fox News if he wanted to raise taxes on most Americans last month, Scott straight up lied by saying his plan would not do that. He received no pushback from host Sean Hannity.

Appearing on The Ingraham Angle on Monday, Scott said that Americans “want free government stuff.””

  1. You can't afford food or rent because your in a low paying job(s), because your billionaire employer pays less to the people who are doing the work that they pay mostly to themselves. So, you apply for assistance. Then this clown comes around wanting to take away what money you do make. And now, you are even less able to pay the bills, and need even more assistance. The government Will end up spending more, from collecting the money then sending it back.

  2. People in the US really need to get over the notion that we pay a lot in taxes. We REALLY don't. None of us. We pay very little in taxes, and pay MORE in the end for various privatized goods and services. It's a terrible model for an economy.

  3. There must be an election coming up for Mitch because he only starts working for his constituents the year or two before an election.. Republican party 101 memo to stay in office.. people only remember what they did recently…

  4. Hmmm….it's OK to steal from people and call it something other than what it is, "taxation", "revenue enhancement", or something else. They don't want to steal from low income, but theft is OK if it is from higher income earners…Typical!

  5. You can't stop him if he get the backing. I don't care anymore, I'm a Democrat and I don't fucken care. Because what his racist ass do, he do it to the Republicans to

  6. You know you can collect all the taxes from the lowest income folks all you're going to do is give more money to poor people so they can afford to pay taxes. No wonder our country is in excessive debt

  7. Never thought I’d live to see the day when Democrats and self avowed socialists complain about tax hikes. Mitt Romney was right when he said “47% of Americans pay no federal income taxes because they believe that they are victims, believe that they are entitled to healthcare, to food, to housing, to you name it and they will never be convinced to take personal responsibility and care for their lives”. I saw Mitt speak last year and he confirmed it’s now a majority of the country. I paid $857,000 after Trump cut my taxes by $54,000. Totally unacceptable.

  8. Republicans have no morals, why they go by many names, party of corporates, party of bigots, party of liers, party of insurrectionists, the biggest fraud of christionanity family values bs, those are the example all you Republican votes, vote against your interest nothing in their policies helps you, that's the hard truth.

  9. All citizens of this country MUST be aware that Republicans are the absolute ENEMY of the American people! Thieves and liars, they’re always looking to take whats yours. Take away SS that we paid into for decades, they better be ready to pay back many millions of dollars to us! The criminal Republicans even tried to steal OUR election!

  10. its no wonder why were so much in debt and and all the gov't funded jobs are always struggiling and in need of money. because they take from those with the least to give while letting those with the most to give keep their money.

    its like 2 people going to a bank for a loan both trying to get a loan of a million dollars, 1 person who can pay back a 100k a month and the other can only payback 1k a month. and instead of giving the loan to the person who can payback 100k a month and get their money back in just 10 months,give the loan to the person that can only payback 1k a month and will never receive their full money back
