Rick Scott: Democrat Senate Wins Mean 'Control,' Socialist Policies

Sen. Rick Scott, R-Fla., warned Monday that Democrat wins of two U.S. Senate seats in Georgia on Jan. 5 will result in national policies that will "control your life."

In an interview on Fox News’ “Fox & Friends,” Scott pointed to Vermont Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders’ vision for Democrat control of the Senate: passage of progressive legislation.

“I think it’s real simple: Democrats want to control your life,” Scott said.

"Bernie Sanders is right. If they could win in Georgia, then his idea of socialism — the Democrats' idea to pack the Supreme Court and infringe on our First and Second Amendment rights, ruin Medicare, ruin private healthcare insurance, have all healthcare insurance run by the government —" could come to fruition, he explained.

“The Green New Deal, which is, what, $100 trillion. All these things [are] socialism. I don’t believe that’s going to happen. I don’t believe that’s where Georgia is, including where Georgia or Florida or the country is. But Bernie’s right, and I’m glad he’s honest about it. This is what they want. They want complete control.”

Scott likened the possible actions of an empowered Kamala Harris, as vice president, to those of former Cuban dictator Fidel Castro and former Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez.

“What they’ve said — remember what Kamala Harris said,” Scott warned.

“She wants everybody to have the exact same outcome. That means you have no opportunity. This is things what Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez would say. 'Oh, everybody should have the same thing.' And so, what that means is nobody has any opportunity. 

“Republicans want to give you a life,” he continued. “So if Republicans go out and talk to everybody — you know, it doesn’t matter the color of your skin or your religion — go talk to everybody about lower taxes, more opportunity, less regulation, better schools, supporting law enforcement, guess what? … You have the example — you have what happened. I won my three races, two for governor and U.S. Senate. And, Donald Trump had a big win ... a month and a half ago [in Florida].”

“If that’s what Republicans do, we win,” he said.
