Rick Scott Has No Regrets

Fresh off his disastrous stint as NRSC chair and failed run for Senate minority leader, Rick Scott whined in a new op-ed and said he has no regrets about putting pen to paper about his plan to put Social Security and Medicare on the chopping block.

In the midst of high levels of disarray and finger pointing among Republicans, Rick Scott said he did not regret releasing his plan “one bit.”

Washington Examiner“Yes, I put out a plan of ideas, and I don’t regret it one bit. Yes, one of them suggested sunsetting laws after five years — noting that if a law is worth keeping, Congress can pass it again. Washington has spent decades exploding the size of our government and wasting money, and it must be stopped.”

After releasing a plan that could have jeopardized seniors’ hard earned benefits, Rick Scott tried to make himself out to be the victim.

Washington Examiner: “I originally wrote this op-ed to respond to some of those criticisms directly, several of which have been published recently in the Washington Post. Sadly, the Washington Post refused to accept this piece. The Washington establishment, in both Congress and the media, is so committed to the status quo that it will do whatever it takes to silence anyone who thinks differently. So much for ‘democracy dies in darkness,’ right?”

We hope Rick Scott keeps reminding voters that he and some of his fellow Republicans want to jeopardize Social Security and Medicare.
