Urge FL Legislators to Pass House Joint Resolution 785 and House Bill 787
As cited in this article, Rick Scott came into the governor’s office without having ever governed. Not even a term on a school board. He never even had to get folks to reach consensus in a precinct.
Scott’s main qualification to be governor was that he was CEO of an HMO found guilty of the worst case of Medicare fraud in U.S. history.
The most fundamental concept about governing is politics is the art of compromise. Being CEO, on the other hand, is the art of applying force and pressure. Running a company is nothing like running a state.
Scott’s budget proposal includes $4.6 billion in spending cuts that would result in the direct loss of more than 8,000 jobs.
It would also privatize large areas of state services, including juvenile justice facilities, Medicaid, and some hospitals.
Education spending would be cut by more than $3 billion and teachers and other public employees would see their pensions under threat.
The passage of Rep. Kriseman’s legislation, House Joint Resolution 785 and House Bill 787 will permit the recall of state officials. We strongly urge it's reading and passage.
If, as it's been said, accountability is a cornerstone of the majority party, then honest and dedicated elected officials have nothing to fear from the implementation of this important proposal. Here's a chance for them to put some accountability behind those words.
Gov Scott wants to take $1.5 Billion from our chidren's education and give it to the top 2 % and corporations.
This is a man who took the 5th 75 times is a deposition related to 14 corporate felonies.
18 states now permit the recall of state officials.
The taxpayers of the beautiful state of Florida deserve no less.
