Rick Scott doesn’t tell the truth about Nelson’s record on taxes while running from his own

Rick Scott is waging false attacks against Nelson to hide from his own record of backing tax breaks for himself while Floridians struggle.

Scott uses false claims against Nelson that Politifact already rated ‘False.’ 

Politifact Called Attack That Nelson Voted To Raise Taxes 272 Times FALSE. “Mack said that ‘Bill Nelson actually voted in favor of higher taxes 272 times.’ […] But Mack grossly inflates the number by counting multiple votes on the same bill, non-binding resolutions and some fees that only affected a slice of the population. We rate this claim False.” [Politifact, 11/1/12]
