Governor Rick Scott actually makes a commercial attacking the woman who called him out in a local Starbucks for cutting Medicaid.

"Latte Liberal?" Well that woman certainly got under SOMEBODY'S skin.

But was she really that wrong?

Courtesy of the LA Times: 

Local fact-checkers have picked apart Jennings' spiel and found it wanting in a few particulars, though it certainly remains well within the accepted margin of error of standard political discourse. Scott's efforts to bring Florida within the ACA's orbit have been halting and cynical. He opposed Medicaid expansion at first, then reversed himself and offered to expand it for three years only, after which it would have to be reauthorized. But he didn't push hard enough to get even that through the Legislature. 

Scott has attacked the Obama administration for failing to extend federal funding for its low-income pool, a program aimed at helping Florida hospitals with the costs of uncompensated care that expired in 2015. But as federal officials have pointed out, the remedy for the loss of this funding is to expand Medicaid, which Florida has refused to do. Essentially, Scott wants the feds to pick up the tab for his own failing. 

Then there's HB 1411, the law Scott signed in March, which purports to cut off state funding of abortion, but imposes excessive restrictions on abortion clinics similar to those already being challenged in Texas and elsewhere. Scott tried to minimize the impact of the law by saying that Planned Parenthood only received $114,000 a year in state funding, but Planned Parenthood says the real sum is more than twice that, and adds that "because the legislation is broadly written, Planned Parenthood will also lose access to reimbursements from local government entities and federal funding from the Title X program that is contracted through local county Health Departments."

So no she wasn't wrong.

And as for those jobs that Scott is bragging about, well really had little or nothing to do with his policies.

In fact the job growth in this country is typically credited to President Obama and his administration.

You know, the President that Rick Scott typically vilifies at every opportunity.

    And so after fulfilling the r agenda for the last 10 immediate years. Privatized, dissolve, extort, divide, frack, take, hate, spin, twist, kill and rape the American people, It is not enough. The r's will hire a perfect asshole to finish the job. Destroy and sale America. Sell her steel, lumber, inventions, secrets, beauty, and spirit. Sell her history. And spin to win.

    You don't have to be a liberal to conclude that Rick is one filthy asshole, wasting Gubmint money on overbearing ads attacking and bullying Sovereign Citizens. Don't tread on me, asshole!

    Crime and Punishment

    Abortion is a crime -murder- so Republicans strive to have the SCOTUS make it illegal and in the meantime they do everything in their power to make it unavailable. But as Trump found out, they should never mention the logical conclusion of punishment because that's a huge mistake at election time. What assholes.

    She must have hit a nerve.

    I've never understood why people in Florida elected this criminal in the first place. He was/is a convicted felon.

    1. Anonymous9:12 AM

      As a resident of FLorida, neither can I. I was totally amazed when he "won" the first time. The second time probably had to do with "hanging chads" and voting machines.
      He is so wealthy and all of it he stole from among others, Medicare.
      Cannot abide the asshole.

    2. He was elected because Florida is a Republican state and too many people will just vote their party. It was obvious that he was a crook and a jerk. I am a Florida native and he is by far the worst governor we have had!

    Holy Shit. A sitting Governor went after a private constituent/citizen like this???? She can sue him for invasion of privacy.

    This is unprecedented. I believe this fits the legal definition of slander.

    She needs to sue the SHIT out of this pathetic loser

  11. What a coward! Can't debate the woman to her face. Has to hide behind his media people.

    1. What a baby.

      Can't let it slide but has to pay money for a big media blitz to name call this woman.

      And it only brings more attention to her and what she said.

      A Significant Reason Most Superdelegates Are Pledged to Hillary Clinton, Wealthy Donors, Bundled Money, Sent To State Democrat Offices And Laundered Back To Her.
      You know how all these superdelegates are illogically voting for Hillary in states that had landslide results for Bernie Sanders and the talk about Hillary being the only candidate donating to the DNC? Below is a description of the main cause of both. The best thing for Bernie to do is stay out of their corruption which he seems to be doing quite well. This is truly disgusting.


    2. The Superdelegates had no ethical justification to pledge to any candidate until after all of the primaries.

      Just another example of the Democratic party being just as corrupt as the Republicans.

    In the last election this fuchhead was Way down in the polls and Charlie Crist was ahead.The night of the election all of a sudden the voting machines were doing strange things and showing a surge for FH. Crist tried to get a stop on this from a judge (R) who said no. The upshot is that FH suddenly"won" by EXACTLY the same number of votes he got in the first race.

    1. Let me guess.


      Anyone that doesn't believe there *is* rampant election fraud in this country (that has nothing to do with the actual voters) is living in a dream world.

      As Stalin said, it's he who counts the votes.

    New Ad Nails Do Nothing Republicans By Asking What It Is That They Do In Washington


    1. Well, they certainly don't confirm any judicial appointments. Even when they do they still linger waiting for a vote.

      Worst Congress in 50 years.

  16. Rick Scott is a thin skinned asshole and can't stand it that he got a public dressing down by a member of the public. Not only that, but that it went viral.

    So what does wittle Wicky do? He spends a bunch of money to name call the woman? Really?

    Are all Republicans as play yard bully can't take it whiners like Dullard Drumpf?

    Please, Florida. Just vote the death's head out of office already.

    Poor Gov Scott "outs" a former government employee and mocks her for what she does, while his actions guarantee she can't get the help she's entitled to.

    What a brave asshole, afraid of a woman speaking the truth? He's afraid they'll meet up in a dark ally, and she might nag him to death on his abysmal record, so he lashes out with a you tube commercial. What a man among men!!


Don't feed the trolls!
It just goes directly to their thighs.
