This Is What Republicans Do

Here is what Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) is up to.

From ThinkProgress:
Scott will invoke his “emergency powers” to impose a 15 percent cut to the rates charged by group home workers and case workers that help the 30,000 Floridians with cerebral palsy, autism, and Down Syndrome.
He is going to sacrifice aid to cerebral palsy, autism, and Down Syndrome sufferers to do what?
Scott says the cuts are necessary to address a $170 million deficit in the Agency for Persons with Disabilities — but at the same time, he is also proposing $1.5 billion in corporate tax cuts and $1.4 billion more in property tax cuts.
 Do you think that maybe, just maybe, he could have proposed $1.4 BILLION in corporate tax cuts and $1.3 BILLION in property tax cuts, and not have to cut rates paid to helpers of 30,000 American people with cerebral palsy, autism, and Down Syndrome? 

Maybe, just maybe, help some people who need REAL help?


  1. Of course he could have, but then he wouldn't be a Republican. I see a lot of recalls/impeachments coming down the pike.

  2. Gov. White-collar Crime could've raised corporate taxes to $2.5 billion, hired more case workers and paid them better, and still been able to reduce property taxes somewhat.

    Of course, Grover Norquist and hordes of loony tea baggers would be after Scott as if he was some kind of crook until he was finally run out of office.

    From where I sit, that would be win, win, win, win — you get the idea.

  3. Fraud is virtue. War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.

  4. Scott is a crooked lying bastard who talks out of both sides of his mouth...and ass!

  5. But they're the party of family values! I guess they only care about your family if they see you comitting "immoral acts". Then they want to get involved in your business.

    But if you need help -- then get a job. Or hope there's a private charity that might be willing to help you. Otherwise piss off.

    I hope you're right about those recalls and impeachments tnlib.

  6. you wonder how they can sleep at night?

  7. I Interested to see your website. And I Consious to read tht posting great man. Thanks to update
