EVERYTHING THIS MAN HAS DONE HAS RUINED FLORIDA
- Refused to participate in ACA, restricting Floridians access to certain benefits of the ACA including expanded medical coverage for the elderly and poor. And if the supreme court votes on it, we may even be prevented from access to the subsidies created to help poor people get insured through the federal marketplace at healthcare.gov. Meaning we’d have to pay full price for our insurance even if we can’t afford it because its the fucking law.
- Changed the rules for Unemployment so that people like me who have worked for the last 10 years were deemed uncovered by the Unemployment insurance we paid for with our taxes and the taxes paid by our employers if we didn’t make enough money in three to six month gaps of time and automatically eliminates contractors for eligibility. It also means that we are automatically disqualified for continued benefits if we are unemployed for longer than 3 months.
- Has continually pushed for drug testing of people receiving welfare benefits even after it was proven that the money spent on the testing exceeded the money saved by restricting those who failed the drug test. Knowing Rick Scott’s ties to medical industries, he most likely received profits and kickbacks from the laboratories commissioned to do these tests.
- He adopted a Dog for his campaign then immediately returned it to a kill shelter when he won.
- He has actively worked towards voter suppression by constantly changing the rules about early and weekend voting periods so that people were confused about when they could vote, and in some cases waiting in long lines that eventually were cut off when the polls closed so even though they had been there for hours to vote, they were prevented from doing so. Hes also attempted multiple times to cull voters by labeling anyone within certain non-white demographics as non-citizens even though they are legal citizens.
- He’s completely against Medical Marijuana even though Charlottes web strains of marijuana have proven to work against the onset of things like childhood seizures which has proven to save fucking lives.
- He currently wants to Frack the Everglades and is allowing Walmart to buy chunks of it to build new stores.
- He tried to get Hookah’s banned even though its a thriving industry in most of Florida, and would have shuttered multiple small business in my hometown. Some of which are owned by friends of mine.
- When asked about education grants.
“You know what? They need to get education in areas where they can get jobs, You know, we don’t need a lot more anthropologists in the state. It’s a great degree if people want to get it, but we don’t need them here. I want to spend our dollars giving people science, technology, engineering, math degrees. That’s what our kids need to focus all their time and attention on. Those type of degrees. So when they get out of school, they can get a job.”
In otherwords, FUCK RICK SCOTT.
