Senator Rick Scott, Republican of Florida, is saying out loud what many Americans are thinking: Joe Biden needs to go and do it soon.
In every domestic department Biden is failing and his national security credentials aren’t up to snuff either. The only issue with a Biden resignation is that Kamala Harris would take over as president, not a great alternative for the country. But Scott’s call is still legitimate because attention must be drawn to Biden’s inability to conduct the duties of his office.
FNC: “Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., is calling for President Biden’s resignation in light of a new Bureau of Labor Statistics report showing a Consumer Price Index increase of 8.3% over the past 12 months.
The 8.3% CPI increase comes as April 2022 saw an increase of 0.3% from the previous month. The one area that saw a decrease in April was energy, that lowered by 2.7%, but this is still 30.3% higher over the past year.
Gasoline in particular dropped by 6.1% in April after an increase of 18.3% in March. Even with the April reduction, however, the CPI for gasoline is still up 43.6% from one year ago.
In a statement released Wednesday morning, Scott blamed the Biden administration’s agenda of high government spending for contributing to high inflation, and accused the president of not having a strategy to address the problem.”
.@JoeBiden is unwell. He’s unfit for office. He’s incoherent, incapacitated & confused.
If Biden wants to actually fix the inflation crisis he created, he should resign. https://t.co/KqrCqgheI2

“Joe Biden has NO PLAN to fight the inflation crisis he has caused, and families all across America are experiencing this crisis every day,” Scott said. “Biden’s raging inflation is a tax on every American. Families are suffering, but Blame-Game Biden refuses to take responsibility,” he said. “It’s clear that Biden is the problem. He is incoherent and confused and he needs to resign.”
“While Biden hides, across America we are seeing the highest gas prices in the history of our country, a low labor participation rate, a GDP that is declining and mortgage rates rising.
“Well, look at his accomplishments. It’s the opposite. We’re in horrible shape. He doesn’t even know what state I’m from. And you said he was supposed to give his ideas on inflation yesterday. What were his ideas? Oh, it’s everybody else’s fault but his. So we know he can’t do it. Let’s be honest. We know that Joe Biden cannot fix this economy. Alright, get out of the way, let somebody else do it. That’s what you do in business life. … He’s confused about all these things. … Get people back to work. That’s how this country was built…Let’s be honest here. Joe Biden is unwell. He’s unfit for office. He’s incoherent, incapacitated and confused. He doesn’t know where he is half the time. He’s incapable of leading and he’s incapable of carrying out his duties,” Scott added.
