  1. “May the SUNSET on the RepubliKKKLAN GOP Party once and for all time and may we never hear from them again, AMEN.”

    1. Dear Joan E skins: Etiquette is good to have. Dem criminals and the international world is going gaga over the decency that Sleepy Joe and sleep-around Harris provides. When Kamala fornicates, the Lord will refuse to hear her noisome prayers.

    1. @Antonio Montana Well it worked on you, didn’t it?… Should I apologize because I can’t help myself from laughing at partisan hacks on CNN?……btw that was a rhetorical question, there’s no need for anyone to respond.

  2. How gonna tell him that Jake Tapper is a news anchor not a congressman or senator πŸ€·πŸ½β€β™‚οΈπŸ€¦πŸ½πŸ€£

  3. When radical Republicans say something publicly or not, pay attention!Look what happened to Roe V. Wade!!🀚🏾🀚🏾

    1. @P S I have said (for years) that the politicians ‘golden ticket’ retirement and health benefits, should be rolled into SSI and Medicare. The whole solvency issue of SSI &Medicare would be resolved immediately & never used like a rainy-day fund again, if the politicians were on the exact same plan.

  4. Rick Scott sounds like a child when they get caught doing something bad and they immediately play the blame game

    1. The only way she could have improved that comment would have been to say “If you actually believe the BS you are spewing, you need to know that the American people are not as stupid as you obviously are”.

  5. Rick Scott has a 16% approval rating based on the latest national polls that I’ve seen. That is way too damn high. 😁 He better get to work defrauding the polling companies.

    2. @Ife’ Green Gerrymandering?!!! He’s in the Senate, not the House. A majority of Floridians, not just one district, keep reelecting this dope.

  6. Imagine being 70 and being told your Social Security is going change. Also, it’s hard enough to jump through the insurance board game each year trying to pick health care because they want to eliminate Medicare and “Privatize” healthcare so the money from Medicare goes to private insurance corporations. ☘️

    1. @unJackable420 Same here 67 and having health issues . No way I could survive without it . Who wants to hire a sick old man ?

    2. They can not do such horrific thing. People like yourself have paid into SSB. The democrats and President Biden will never sign veto it.

  7. It amazes me how so many Floridians continue to vote for Republican politicians against their own best interests. Under educated and misinformed seniors.

    1. It’s just most people believe the sound bites Republicans spit out. They are good at twisting the truth to make it sound like a lie

    1. @Charly RhoadesΒ  why did they switch the subject then? This is supposed to be a serious issue about Medicare and SS right? But they switched cuz tapper can’t defend himself. It was super cringe to watch that.

    2. @A S Hacks? Oh son, that would be you saying Jake Tapper squirmed.
      He so clearly showed showed 7:01 your over the hill old man, Scott, MISQUOTED. You need to educate yourself better πŸ˜‚

    1. It says everything about the pathetic performance of the fourth estate in in the US that you think that….US press has totally abdicated their responsibilities.

    2. Ms Collins should have said β€œI don’t care what Jake Tapper said .. I’m asking what YOU said!!”

    3. @Rick Schroth
      Why are you coming down on Miss Collins and not Rick Scott!?
      He’s was deflecting the whole time!

    4. @Raymond Rocha jr I’m just stating that she should dealt with his deflecting head on. She needed to eliminate that response and refocused on getting her question answered.

    5. @Rick Schroth
      It would have not mattered! He is all about whataboutisms!
      He would never give her a straight answer!

    1. Basically! The Republican GOP just wants hardworking Americans who PAID into the Social Security benefit to just DIE! then those funds go back to the government πŸ˜’

    2. It would be kinder if they legalized physician assisted self deliverence on demand. So many seniors are now forced to live in cars and vans with barely enough money to survive.

  8. We pay for our social security, and I’m sick and tired of corporate subsidies and tax evasion. The GOP want to give welfare to corporations and make regular working people pay more than their share until the day they die.

    1. If cost cutting is the issue, why is no one talking about curtailing some unnecessary military spending, that would solve much of the issues.

  9. If any one remembers the history of Scott, he ran a corporation he was involved in health care business latter being charged with ripping off the health system, when he showed up in court he took the “FIFTH” seventy five times, his company was subject to the largest fine in medical history. The people of Florida decided that if he was that big of a crook, he would make a fine Governor after his time was up, the Florida Republicans decided that they they can’t let this guy go, as they need more of his kind in Congress so off he went to Congress were he started to but heads with Mitch, so, Mith had to put him in a corner for a time out. Mitch has underestimated the people of Florida, most likely they have an eye on their boy Scott for his next move into the white House ,where he will probably out crook the forty fifth. And The Floridians will just love him more.

  10. Kaitlan Collins: β€œI don’t think that’s the defense you think it is.”
    Rick Scott: Derp!
