Senate Republican leaders have no plans to release an alternative agenda as they try to win back the majority this fall. So Rick Scott is pursuing his own plan.

i admit the plans carry some risk. It’s not at all clear that the GOP would unify around Scott’s proposals, which include many ideas that would struggle to attract Democratic support, could alienate some independent voters and could even split the GOP. Scott acknowledged as much in introducing his priorities, arguing they may “strike fear in the heart of some Republicans.”

The 11-point plan is great… just missing lower taxes

The number-one point out of the 11 broad points in the plan is “Education,” a huge focus of the party after Youngkin’s victory

This is what people think, by the way...If you talk to a normal, non-woke family, this is what they think



extended excerpts: (sorry they're so long, but this is an important topic):

Our kids will say the pledge of allegiance, salute the Flag, learn that America is a great country, and choose the school that best fits them

Government will never again ask American citizens to disclose their race, ethnicity, or skin color on any government form.

The soft-on-crime days of coddling criminal behavior will end. We will re-fund and respect the police because, they, not the criminals, are the good guys.

We will secure our border, finish building the wall, and name it after President Donald Trump

We will grow America’s economy, starve Washington’s economy, and stop Socialism

“Here’s why I’m doing it. I’m a business guy. In business, what I’ve always done is I figure out my business plan, and then I worked my plan — that’s what I’ve always done, and I’ve always had success,” Scott told Breitbart News. “I did the same thing when I ran in 2010 for governor. I wrote my plan. I worked my plan. Then I implemented it when I became governor, and we turned around the state of Florida. I am the same way — I have a plan at the NRSC. I have a plan for my job as a U.S. senator, and this is my plan for how we’re going to turn around the country. I think our country is in deep trouble. I think we’re not going to turn it around if we don’t have a plan to do it. It’s what I believe in, and I think it’s what Republicans if we talk about things that people would like Republicans to talk about it. We’ll see, and people will give me different ideas about what they believe in, but it’s got to be what people believe in. I believe we win elections by having plans.”

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, the architect of the 1994 House GOP takeover with the Contract with America, in a statement provided to Breitbart News also endorsed Scott’s vision for the GOP while comparing it to that historic plan he released decades ago.

“Rick Scott’s Rescue America Plan is a very important contribution toward a positive, problem-solving Republican Party,” Gingrich said. “Like the Contract with America, it will help win the election and also, even more importantly, serve as a blueprint for the new Republican majority to focus on solving problems and creating a dramatically better American future. It is a very important step toward getting America back on track toward a more prosperous, freer and safer future.”

Scott also told Breitbart News that “we’ll see” when asked if he expects many GOP senators and candidates to endorse his vision for the party and the country.

“These are things I’m going to talk about. I’m sure everybody is going to talk about different things, but my goal when we get the majority is let’s do something,” Scott said. “Let’s actually accomplish something, and I’m a business guy, so this is what I do. I write plans. I enact plans. This is how I actually get success. That’s what I want to get done for this country. This is a country where there’s no place for me to move. I’ve lived in eight states to try to find the best place. I think I live in the best place right now, which is Florida, but I want to fix this country.”

Scott added too that some might not like that he is laying it out there this clearly, but he is doing it anyway because he thinks the country needs it.

“Some people are going to hate that I’m pushing to have a conversation on these things, but it’s the right thing to do,” Scott said. “If you’re going to get anywhere, you got to have a plan to do it.”

“The things that impact a family the most are three things: self-sufficiency, that could be a job or that could be inflation or how things cost too much or things like that,” Scott said in his interview. “So that first thing is financial. The next thing is their kids’ educations, whether you’re talking about critical race theory or you’re talking about school choice — all those things — what every family wants is their kid to have a shot at the dream because they know that’s the dream. Education is the way out of poverty. I lived it. I grew up in public housing with a single mom, and education is how I was able to figure it out. Then, the third thing is going to be, do you feel safe? That could be the police, that could be a strong military, that could be fighting drugs, that could be securing the border, but I think it all sort of comes down to those things. When I grew up, we said the Pledge of Allegiance every day. We saluted the flag. We didn’t trash our forefathers. We didn’t have enough school choice, but I think parents — rich parents get to choose their kids’ schools — all parents ought to get to choose their kids’ schools.”

“I think we need to stop the problem first,” Scott said of the hard-core vision he is laying out for the party on immigration. “I’m from an immigration state. We like immigration — legal immigration. But right now, who’s getting hurt? Who’s getting hurt when people come here illegally? It’s people who are in the system trying to figure out how to become legal citizens. The easy thing now is to just come across our southern border — take a flight to Mexico City, or take a flight somewhere close to the southern border, take an Uber and then walk across the border. That’s not the way you fix immigration. You exacerbate the problem. I think we’ve got to finish the wall, we’ve got to have border security, and then we start tackling immigration. It will not be easy to fix immigration, but the first thing we ought to say to ourselves is we want people to come to our country who believe in our country and believe in capitalism and that are exceptional and want to be independent.”

“If you think about it, when I grew up, we didn’t have $30 trillion worth of debt,” Scott told Breitbart News. “In my schools, they didn’t teach that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were evil racists. We didn’t trash our country. We were taught that you had to listen to our elders and you had to listen to law enforcement and you didn’t want to ever violate the law and it wasn’t — the law probably wasn’t as bad as my mom was. My mom would have been just livid if I ever did something wrong. The country is in trouble — $30 trillion worth of debt. I don’t know if you followed, but I blocked the postal reform bill. Do you know what the postal reform bill did? It did nothing to increase revenues, nothing to reduce costs, it did nothing to create efficiencies, but it took liabilities off the balance sheet of the postal service and put them onto the balance sheet of Medicare, and people act like we did something.”

“You’ve got to treat kids as kids,” Scott told Breitbart News when asked about these provisions. “Men shouldn’t be taking over women’s sports. I think it’s wrong what’s going on in this country right now — we’re going to kill women’s sports. They’re going to stop winning, just look at the NCAA championship swimming. I do believe we ought to be careful about these gender-altering procedures on a child. I think we’ve got to do everything we can to take care of unborn babies. I’m pro-life. This is science. Democrats all want to use science when it’s to their benefit. We know that abortion takes a human life, so I think we got to do everything we can to protect babies.”

Scott was emphatic that he is not setting up a presidential run with his agenda: “I’m not. So, I’m doing it because I’m a business guy and I believe in plans.” Scott’s term is up in 2024.

The trump loyalist didn't start with a promise to go by election results as stipulated in the Constitution, so it's all BullShit. Nobody in their right mind could support a republican agenda without that spelled out and signed in blood. They must take a Trumpist overthrow of government off the table, or people have no choice but to vote Democrat to keep the union.

That’s not the way you fix immigration. You exacerbate the problem. I think we’ve got to finish the wall, we’ve got to have border security, and then we start tackling immigration. It will not be easy to fix immigration, but the first thing we ought to say to ourselves is we want people to come to our country who believe in our country and believe in capitalism and that are exceptional and want to be independent.”

“If you think about it, when I grew up, we didn’t have $30 trillion worth of debt,” Scott told Breitbart News. “In my schools, they didn’t teach that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and James Madison were evil racists. We didn’t trash our country. We were taught that you had to listen to our elders and you had to listen to law enforcement and you didn’t want to ever violate the law and it wasn’t — the law probably wasn’t as bad as my mom was. My mom would have been just livid if I ever did something wrong. The country is in trouble — $30 trillion worth of debt. I don’t know if you followed, but I blocked the postal reform bill. Do you know what the postal reform bill did? It did nothing to increase revenues, nothing to reduce costs, it did nothing to create efficiencies, but it took liabilities off the balance sheet of the postal service and put them onto the balance sheet of Medicare, and people act like we did something.”

“You’ve got to treat kids as kids,” Scott told Breitbart News when asked about these provisions. “Men shouldn’t be taking over women’s sports. I think it’s wrong what’s going on in this country right now — we’re going to kill women’s sports. They’re going to stop winning, just look at the NCAA championship swimming. I do believe we ought to be careful about these gender-altering procedures on a child. I think we’ve got to do everything we can to take care of unborn babies. I’m pro-life. This is science. Democrats all want to use science when it’s to their benefit. We know that abortion takes a human life, so I think we got to do everything we can to protect babies.”

Scott was emphatic that he is not setting up a presidential run with his agenda: “I’m not. So, I’m doing it because I’m a business guy and I believe in plans.” Scott’s term is up in 2024.
Beware! One part of the RESCUE plan is to establish a 5 year SUNDOWNING of all federal Legislation. This means Social Security and Medicare among other safety nets for the working class. Effectively it means that every 5 years, congress would have to take a special vote whether to extend those programs or let then go bye bye for another five years. Make no mistake about it. This is the pipe bomb hidden in that plan. I knew sooner or later they would com after these programs. Just think about how the GOP was so anxious to get rid of the ACA. And they never did have or even planned to have anything to replace it. So if you or someone you care about are benefitting from these programs, spread the word. Both Rick Scott and Lindsay Graham have said that we simply cannot pass another budget without eliminating Federal Entitlements! Rescue plan my ass!!

You know damn well that Social Security is not going to be eliminated. There were ideas to privatize or partially privatize it in the 1980's when the government made a massive tax increase in it. This after a good tax increase in the 1970's. Anyway, the young Baby Boomers who wanted to move to at least a partially privatized plan were told to shut up. Well they started to retire 10 years ago or so. And now it is not so much fun with all the money coming in used for all the other programs instead of saving the surpluses for SS recipients. Those surpluses are ending. And the payers are becoming the payees.

Senate Republican leaders have no plans to release an alternative agenda as they try to win back the majority this fall. So Rick Scott is pursuing his own plan.

i admit the plans carry some risk. It’s not at all clear that the GOP would unify around Scott’s proposals, which include many ideas that would struggle to attract Democratic support, could alienate some independent voters and could even split the GOP. Scott acknowledged as much in introducing his priorities, arguing they may “strike fear in the heart of some Republicans.”

The 11-point plan is great… just missing lower taxes

The number-one point out of the 11 broad points in the plan is “Education,” a huge focus of the party after Youngkin’s victory

This is what people think, by the way...If you talk to a normal, non-woke family, this is what they think



extended excerpts: (sorry they're so long, but this is an important topic):

Our kids will say the pledge of allegiance, salute the Flag, learn that America is a great country, and choose the school that best fits them

Government will never again ask American citizens to disclose their race, ethnicity, or skin color on any government form.

The soft-on-crime days of coddling criminal behavior will end. We will re-fund and respect the police because, they, not the criminals, are the good guys.

We will secure our border, finish building the wall, and name it after President Donald Trump

We will grow America’s economy, starve Washington’s economy, and stop Socialism

“Here’s why I’m doing it. I’m a business guy. In business, what I’ve always done is I figure out my business plan, and then I worked my plan — that’s what I’ve always done, and I’ve always had success,” Scott told Breitbart News. “I did the same thing when I ran in 2010 for governor. I wrote my plan. I worked my plan. Then I implemented it when I became governor, and we turned around the state of Florida. I am the same way — I have a plan at the NRSC. I have a plan for my job as a U.S. senator, and this is my plan for how we’re going to turn around the country. I think our country is in deep trouble. I think we’re not going to turn it around if we don’t have a plan to do it. It’s what I believe in, and I think it’s what Republicans if we talk about things that people would like Republicans to talk about it. We’ll see, and people will give me different ideas about what they believe in, but it’s got to be what people believe in. I believe we win elections by having plans.”

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, the architect of the 1994 House GOP takeover with the Contract with America, in a statement provided to Breitbart News also endorsed Scott’s vision for the GOP while comparing it to that historic plan he released decades ago.

“Rick Scott’s Rescue America Plan is a very important contribution toward a positive, problem-solving Republican Party,” Gingrich said. “Like the Contract with America, it will help win the election and also, even more importantly, serve as a blueprint for the new Republican majority to focus on solving problems and creating a dramatically better American future. It is a very important step toward getting America back on track toward a more prosperous, freer and safer future.”

Scott also told Breitbart News that “we’ll see” when asked if he expects many GOP senators and candidates to endorse his vision for the party and the country.

“These are things I’m going to talk about. I’m sure everybody is going to talk about different things, but my goal when we get the majority is let’s do something,” Scott said. “Let’s actually accomplish something, and I’m a business guy, so this is what I do. I write plans. I enact plans. This is how I actually get success. That’s what I want to get done for this country. This is a country where there’s no place for me to move. I’ve lived in eight states to try to find the best place. I think I live in the best place right now, which is Florida, but I want to fix this country.”

Scott added too that some might not like that he is laying it out there this clearly, but he is doing it anyway because he thinks the country needs it.

“Some people are going to hate that I’m pushing to have a conversation on these things, but it’s the right thing to do,” Scott said. “If you’re going to get anywhere, you got to have a plan to do it.”

“The things that impact a family the most are three things: self-sufficiency, that could be a job or that could be inflation or how things cost too much or things like that,” Scott said in his interview. “So that first thing is financial. The next thing is their kids’ educations, whether you’re talking about critical race theory or you’re talking about school choice — all those things — what every family wants is their kid to have a shot at the dream because they know that’s the dream. Education is the way out of poverty. I lived it. I grew up in public housing with a single mom, and education is how I was able to figure it out. Then, the third thing is going to be, do you feel safe? That could be the police, that could be a strong military, that could be fighting drugs, that could be securing the border, but I think it all sort of comes down to those things. When I grew up, we said the Pledge of Allegiance every day. We saluted the flag. We didn’t trash our forefathers. We didn’t have enough school choice, but I think parents — rich parents get to choose their kids’ schools — all parents ought to get to choose their kids’ schools.”

“I think we need to stop the problem first,” Scott said of the hard-core vision he is laying out for the party on immigration. “I’m from an immigration state. We like immigration — legal immigration. But right now, who’s getting hurt? Who’s getting hurt when people come here illegally? It’s people who are in the system trying to figure out how to become legal citizens. The easy thing now is to just come across our southern border — take a flight to Mexico City, or take a flight somewhere close to the southern border, take an Uber and then walk across the border. That’s not the way you fix immigration. You exacerbate the problem. I think we’ve got to finish the wall, we’ve got to have border security, and then we start tackling immigration. It will not be easy to fix immigration, but the first thing we ought to say to ourselves is we want people to come to our country who believe in our country and believe in capitalism and that are exceptional and want to be independent.”

So he no longer wants to tax people who qualify for medicaid or tanf?

Fantastic. LOL

You obviously have a faith in our government to do what's right that I don't share. Especially when it comes to the GOP. The party that sold the Iraq war. The Party that worships Trump. The party of MTG, Boebert, Cruz, Graham, The "Middle Class Tax Cuts", The Praise Putin party, the deniers of Russian interference, The party of Palin, of DeSantis, of Gohmert, January 6th, etc etc etc. They've proven that there is no length they wouldn't go to and no depth they wouldn't sink to. And the thought of them recapturing one or both of the houses of congress doesn't make the plans to take away soc sec and Medicare any less likely. Anyone and everyone who isn't wealthy has been and will be under attack forever. They want it ALL!
