Defending Gov. Rick Scott

Re the April 7 article, Fact-checking Gov. Rick Scott’s exchange with protester at Starbucks: Fact checking by the Miami Herald showed how off base Cara Jennings was when publicly accusing Gov. Scott.

What was missing in the story is how Jennings is spending money for gourmet coffee and yet expects that I, a regular taxpayer, pay for her health insurance.

I, on the other hand, save my money by brewing my coffee at home to cover my health insurance premium.

I guess as a former Lake Worth City Commissioner, she feels entitled to exploit the working class.
