Tallahassee, FL—Florida Senator Rick Scott introduced legislation that will trigger a federal debt emergency any time that the federal debt report shows that it exceeds 100 percent of gross domestic product (GDP). The Opportunity Solutions Project (OSP) applauds his leadership in raising awareness of our country’s unsustainable fiscal situation.
“Inflation is a serious threat to all Americans regardless of their tax bracket,” said Tarren Bragdon, CEO of OSP. “It impacts hardworking Americans in a very tangible way. We will see the prices of groceries and gas increase, impeding our overall economic recovery. Instead of accepting the government’s default of increasing federal spending, Senator Scott is standing up to protect everyday Americans who have worked hard to earn a living.”
