The facts first: It’s wrong. Scott’s plan calls for raising taxes, specifically that all Americans should pay “some” income tax, even “more than half” of Americans who currently pay none.

Senator Scott believes that everyone should pay their fair share, and everyone should have their skin in the game.”
