In a new video, Sen. Rick Scott tells AFP activists they should be “disappointed” in their senators for voting to pass on a procedural vote the $1.2 trillion so-called bipartisan infrastructure plan, without ever reading it.

As Sen. Scott puts it: “So just stop and think about that. We had all these senators vote for a bill they’ve never seen.”

This is reckless governance.

Making matters worse, this $1.2 trillion plan opens the door for Sen. Bernie Sanders’ $3.5 trillion plan. Sen. Scott explains that Sen. Sanders’ plan is full of partisan “wish list” items.
