Gov. Rick Scott has started his reelection campaign, and his coffers are full of money. But let’s not forget Scott’s governance. He still backs the Stand Your Ground law, even though it has caused unjustifiable deaths. He refused to initiate healthcare exchanges, unlike Kentucky, a red state with a successful implementation of ACA.
Education funding was slashed, and no matter how large the new additional funding is, the state is still lagging in providing a good education to all. His jobs record is nowhere near his goal, he backed the government shutdown and supports cuts in aid to the poor and elderly. His stance on immigration is draconian.
Don’t be swayed by the picture-perfect campaign ads that will bombard us for the next 12 months. Remember his record, and vote for the right candidate.
