Florida Senator Rick Scott made a good point recently: “Americans deserve to know what Republicans would do when given the chance.” Republicans are doing a great job of showing Americans exactly what they stand for — raising taxes, kicking Americans off their health care, removing protections for preexisting conditions, and doing nothing to lower costs, including for health care and prescription drugs.
After Mitch McConnell tried to hide the Republican agenda, Senator Rick Scott is loudly and proudly lining up support behind his agenda to raise taxes on HALF of Americans:

And, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson blew the door open on another Republican priority — kicking millions of Americans off their health care, taking away protections for preexisting conditions, and making health care drastically more expensive:

After only one Illinois Republican congressional candidate out of more than 20 asked had the courage to disagree with the RNC about the “legitimate political discourse” description of the insurrection, it is clear that the Illinois GOP is falling in line with the extreme agenda of the national GOP. Voters in Illinois deserve to know the truth about Republicans’ real policy proposals: higher taxes, more expensive health care, and nothing to lower costs.
