One would think that Florida legislators would recognize the importance of taking care of the people who teach our children, protect our lives and homes and respond to emergencies. But rational thought seems to elude many of them.
The Florida House has passed a bill that strips away economic security for teachers, police, firefighters and public servants when they retire. The representatives who voted for this legislation should sacrifice their own retirement benefits as well.
Do these conservatives really think the rhetoric that places extremist ideology and partisanship over workers’ economic security is going to get them reelected? I hope the bill is defeated in the Senate.
