Senator Rick Scott grew up in public housing in a family that struggled for work. His brother had a rare disease and his mom didn’t have insurance. She eventually found a charity hospital four hours away that they would travel to for his treatment. 

Senator Scott’s personal story has a huge impact on his life and the way he thinks about providing quality healthcare that families can afford. This year, Senator Scott is focused on three areas when it comes to reforming the broken healthcare system: Reducing the cost of prescription drugs, protecting people with pre-existing conditions, and promoting price transparency throughout the healthcare system. 

This week, Senator Scott met with Floridians impacted by the high cost of prescription drugs, as well as industry representatives from across the country, to learn what we can start doing now to lower the cost of prescription drugs for American families.   

Senator Scott also sponsored a bill this week to make Daylight Saving Time permanent, fought to keep oil drilling off Florida’s coasts, and urged the Administration to stand strong against the Cuban and Venezuelan regimes.

Sen. Rick Scott Urges President Trump to Stand Strong and Fully Implement Libertad Act


Senator Rick Scott released the following statement ahead of action by the Administration to fully implement Title III and Title IV of the Libertad Act. This action would allow American citizens to sue companies and their subsidiaries for trafficking in stolen properties, and deny entry to the United States to foreign nationals involved in the trafficking of stolen properties in Cuba.


Senator Rick Scott said, "The Administration’s plan to fully and immediately implement Title III and IV of the Libertad Act signals to the international community that the United States is serious about its commitment to freedom and democracy in Cuba. Allowing American citizens to sue for stolen property in Cuba and denying foreign nationals involved in trafficking stolen property entry into the United States is a huge step toward cutting off the money supply to the Castro Regime. It is clear that where we see instability, chaos and violence in Latin America, we also see the fingerprints of the Castro regime and their money – and this action by the administration is an important step in stabilizing the entire region..."

El senador Rick Scott exhorta al presidente Trump a mantenerse firme e implementar plenamente la Ley de Libertad


senador Rick Scott hoy hizo la siguiente declaración antes de la acción por parte de la Administración para implementar completamente el Título III y el Título IV de la Ley de Libertad. Esta acción permitiría a los ciudadanos estadounidenses demandar a empresas y sus subsidiarias por el tráfico de propiedades robadas, y negar la entrada a los Estados Unidos a ciudadanos extranjeros involucrados en el tráfico de propiedades robadas en Cuba.


El senador Rick Scott dijo: “El plan de la Administración para implementar completa e inmediatamente el Título III y IV de la Ley de Libertad demuestra a la comunidad internacional que los Estados Unidos toman en serio su compromiso con la libertad y la democracia en Cuba. Permitir que ciudadanos estadounidenses demanden por propiedades robadas en Cuba y negar la entrada a los Estados Unidos a ciudadanos extranjeros involucrados en el tráfico de propiedad robada es un gran paso para cortar el flujo de dinero al régimen de Castro. Es evidente que donde vemos inestabilidad, caos y violencia en América Latina, también vemos las huellas del régimen de Castro y su dinero, y esta acción por parte de la Administración es un paso importante para estabilizar la región..."

Sen. Rick Scott Op-Ed: 
Secure borders or process – Democrats, Congress need to decide what really matters

Excerpts below; read the full article HERE.

President Trump campaigned on a promise to stop illegal immigration and secure the border. Some may not have liked his rhetoric or the way he chooses to talk about people – there were times when I certainly didn’t. But he won and now he’s keeping his promise to the American people.

Democrats, and some Republicans, are up in arms about his use of emergency powers to divert money to secure the border.

So, all Senators and Congressmen have to decide – which is more important?

Their long-held views regarding the proper processes by which decisions are made in Washington?

Or, their desire for America to have secure borders?

I can’t see how this is a hard decision to make. What is more important? The process? Or the policy?

I believe that the Democrats in Washington are badly out of step with the American public. Americans want secure borders, the national Democrat Party does not.

Americans also want results. The Democrat Party wants to argue about process.

I’ll stick with results.
