Rick Scott showed his true colors today by banning Democrats from a state event — the signing the state budget.
The Republican Party of Florida apparently rented a section of The Villages, a GOP-heavy retirement community in Central Florida. Then they had sheriffâ€™s deputies kick out members of the Democratic club.
In addition, “other staffers and Republican operatives scoured the crowd and had sheriffs deputies remove those who wore liberal-looking badges,” according to The Miami Herald.
Apparently the big, bad, bald billionaire is scared of facing the least possible criticism.
Apparently Scott doesnâ€™t care that this state has Republicans, independents and Democrats. We all pay taxes and this is a state budget, not a budget for Republicans only.
Apparently Scott doesnâ€™t care that there are more registered Democrats in this state than Republicans.
Apparently Scott â€“ who gutted our stateâ€™s education, health care and safety nets for the poor in less than six months â€“ just doesnâ€™t care.
