Rick Scott ‘Unfit’ ad boosts ‘Rescue America’ plan, bashes Joe Biden

Rick Scott ad
Another video will promote Scott's controversial 11-point plan.

Sen. Rick Scott continues to promote his “11-point plan to rescue America,” with a new television spot out Monday.

The 30-second “Unfit” covers familiar territory. It highlights President Joe Biden saying Scott is from Wisconsin, shows Scott yet again calling for the President’s resignation, and contends that Biden’s economic policies are “forcing America into a recession.”

“I’ve got a plan to turn this country around,” Scott said, urging people to visit RescueAmerica.com, a site which has had a million visits thus far, per a media release from the Scott political operation.

The new “Unfit” is the second paid spot from Scott promoting the plan and playing up his opposition to President Biden. May’s “Biden vs. Scott” spot encapsulated the recent back-and-forth between the President and Scott over the Senator’s policy proposals.

Scott, the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, was criticized by Biden for the plan’s “ultra-MAGA agenda“ in recent remarks.

Biden has focused on Scott’s proposals to make sure more people paid income tax, demonstrating what Scott called “skin in the game,” as well as potential reviews that could sunset programs like Medicare and Social Security.

In addition to these two national spots, Scott also released a digital video last week, where he purports to apologize for the controversy created by his “11-point plan to rescue America.” However, that apology was a ruse.

In a video accompanying “new additions and updates” as part of a “Rescue America 2.0,” Scott quotes Conor McGregor while signaling defiance to critics of the proposal.

“President (Joe) BidenChuck Schumer, and even some Republicans are angry,” Scott said. “So, in the words of famous UFC fighter Conor McGregor, I’d like to apologize to absolutely nobody in Washington.”

The “apologize to absolutely nobody” quote was borrowed from a post-fight interview from the then-ascendant McGregor years ago, in which the Irish fighter stunted on his opposition.

    Fun Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis Florida Facts;

    After 20 years of failed Republican leadership in Florida ….. our once great economy is looking more and more like Alabama or Mississippi’s economy.

    25% of Florida’s residents live below the poverty level.
    33% of Florida’s residents receive Medicaid to survive….. of which only 11% of the 33% are senior retirees.
    25% of Florida’s third grade students can not read.
    Florida’s schools are short 5000 educators and 2000 staff.

    ……and Republicans want to put DeSantis in the Oval Office because he’s great with delivering divisive social issues that excite Trump’s base.

        Tom and Randy are definitely a couple of those 30% that thinks the “incompetent one” is doing a good job. Rick Scott is absolutely correct on this, even if you don’t like him.

          Impeach pleas clarify Tom, like Palmer. I’m the legend Tom.

          Scott has the Kahones to call this incompetent out! This is the worst potus since Hoover’s depression. Biden purposefully destroyed the American economy. This anti carbon is purpose to destroy the middle class. His add is correct. Good for Scott.

          I think Joe Biden is lying about inflation and I have the charts and graphs to prove him a liar, both on inflation and gas prices, the war is not driving inflation this whole administration is an absolute joke, inflation was over 7% when the war started gas price was $3.59 national at that time, as an independent, I have no desire to vote democrat in 2022 or any time in the near future till the party is cleaned up of corruption! I see Trump as Trump’s corruption and Bidens as Bidens, I would love to see someone like DeSantis run and give America another option besides Trump or Biden or some globalist far-left democrat, we’ve all seen how that works out here!

    Tom wants to speak with IB’s manager! Can’t we all agree that Rick Scott is the Kamala Harris of the GOP, that he supported a tax cut for the wealthy and now proffers a tax on the poor? I see common ground here. Even the red folks have to condition their remarks with “even if you dont like him.” He does not belong in the Senate, he belongs in jail. The Dems were weak under Shalala at HHS, and couldn’t nail the king of the Fifth Amendment. If Florida is now a red state, as so many claim it is (with about 35% GOP), then can’t you folks do a little better than Rick?
