Republican Florida Senator Rick Scott has been vocal in his criticism of President Joe Biden, and on Tuesday night, he released an ad that calls for the president to resign. The ad is set to air in Florida on Wednesday, the same day that Biden is scheduled to visit the state.
.@JoeBiden once again lies about Republicans trying to cut Social Security and Medicare.
Here is my ad running tomorrow to welcome Joe to FL – he is a tax cheat and needs to resign. pic.twitter.com/9AdblW008W

The ad begins with Scott accusing Biden of cutting $280 billion from Medicare, a reference to a provision in the Inflation Reduction Act that allows Medicare to negotiate drug prices with manufacturers. Scott then claims that Biden has cheated on his taxes, referring to a report from the Congressional Research Service which found Biden skirted Medicare payments. Scott goes on to say that Biden used a loophole to dodge half a million dollars in taxes that should have gone to Medicare, and that he now wants to close the loophole and raise taxes. Scott ends the ad by calling for Biden to resign.
Scott’s campaign told the Daily Caller News Foundation that the ad was released ahead of Biden’s visit to Florida in order to “welcome” him and to show that it is Biden who wants to cut funding for Medicare and Social Security, not Republicans. The campaign also said that if Biden wants to do something good for the country, he should resign.
The White House did not respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
The ad released by Senator Rick Scott has caused a stir among Florida residents and those across the country. It is clear that Scott does not agree with President Biden’s policies, and he is using this ad to make his opinion known. While it is unclear if the ad will have any effect on Biden’s visit or his policies, it is certain that it has sparked a debate about the president’s actions.
The ad released by Senator Rick Scott is just one example of how people can use their platforms to express their opinions. It is important for people to be aware of the power of their words and how they can be used to influence others. Whether or not this ad will have any effect on President Biden’s visit or policies remains to be seen, but it has certainly caused a stir among those who have seen it.
