Sen. Rick Scott Spoke With Andrew Colton On NewsRadio 610 WIOD Tuesday (Feb 14, 2023) morning.

On claims that he is trying to end social security: “Let’s be honest with the American people and tell him what’s going to do to save it. So Joe Biden, and others have gone out there and lied, and said that, you know, that my goal is to reduce them. But if if you look at my look at my track record, what I’ve been trying to do since I’ve been up here is how do we get our fiscal house in order. So we can save Social Security, Medicare, we just keep borrowing money like we’re doing, we can say we want to save them. But eventually we’re going to run out of money. So I’m going to keep fighting to do it. I put out a bill yesterday or last week, that also would stop Congress from taking money out of Medicare, where they just Democrats did it. They took $20 billion out of Medicare last September, and nobody wants to call them out for that. I mean, there’s the Democrats just you know, they do all these things. And they pass things that impact the viability of Medicare, but nobody wants to call them out. And so I’m calling them out. I’m not I’m not part of the establishment up here. I’m going to represent Florida. And I’m going to make sure that we preserve those programs.”

On Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ battle with the College Board over the Advanced Placement African American Studies class. “I think we ought to push his decisions down to the most local level we can. So there’s things that the federal government already involved in, but reality is, you know, state governments closer to you than federal government, local governments closer to you than state government. And so, I think I think since you know, these universities were created by the state I think they’re the ones that ought to be holding them accountable. And they shouldn’t be woke me, I when I went to school, I went to school to get a job to learn something, it’d be prepared for a job not to be not to be indoctrinated. And so that’s what our school seem to be doing that’s, you know, this teach people how to you know how to get ahead in life. You don’t mean need to say, oh gosh, if you’re this color, you’re bad if you’re this color, you’re good. I mean, this is crazy. First of all, I don’t think government should be asking us or our skin color on any forms. And let’s get back to let’s judge people by their character, not by the color of their skin.”
