Gov. Rick Scott mentioned the jobs created by the construction of the port tunnel, the dream of which began of during Maurice Ferre’s tenure as Miami mayor and whose first feasibility study was paid for by funds obtained by the late Claude Pepper.
Scott forgot that he rejected billions for the high-speed rail corridor between Tampa and Orlando and the $51 billion that the federal government would have made available over 10 years if Florida had accepted the Medicaid money under Obamacare. Both of these would not only have created jobs, but would have insured millions of patients in Florida.
