The Real State of Florida: Rick Scott Left The Middle Class Behind

In response to Rick Scott’s final state of the state speech, American Bridge spokesperson Joshua Karp made the following statement:

“For seven years under Rick Scott, Florida families have been stretched to the breaking point, as basic costs — for health care, storm insurance, and college tuition — have risen, but paychecks keep falling short. From Pensacola to the Keys, Floridians are struggling to reach and stay in the middle class, but for seven years Rick Scott has only done what is best for his wealthy cronies and political donors. While schools are suffering from inadequate funding, Rick Scott focuses on giving massive handouts to big corporations. If Rick Scott runs for U.S. Senate, count on Floridians to hold him accountable for his lies and his abysmal record of always putting them last.”
