Republican Scott Gets Celebratory Party Thanks to Special Interests

Filed under: Politics — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 02:08

Incoming Republican Florida Governor Rick Scott is getting a huge bash thrown in his honor! And, despite Florida’s struggling economy, under-funded educational system, and record-high rate of unemployment, special interests are ponying-up $2 million for his inaugural celebration. The US Sugar Industry, CEO Group (who controls Florida’s prison system), Blue Cross Blue Shield, and Holland & Knight are just some of the groups who cut Scott a check for $25,000 to fund his party. Interesting to note, all of these companies have been entrenched in Florida’s political scene for years. Take it as a lesson learned for those who voted for Scott because he wasn’t your “typical Republican.” On the contrary, Scott is just what the Republicans have always been–crooked, incompetent, and criminal. Floridians made the bed with Scott. Unfortunately, we all have to now lie in that bed with them.
