Rick Scott Grandstands With Floridians' Paychecks

Today, in response to Rick Scott’s shameless grandstanding on auto tag fees, the Florida Democratic Party issued the following statement:

“Floridians saw Governor Rick Scott at his worst today, saying whatever he thinks it takes to win reelection. In 2009, Democrats opposed this measure, and Rick Scott’s GOP allies in the legislature passed it — and his own lieutenant governor whipped the votes get it done. 

“These auto tag fees were always a temporary measure that Rick Scott should have cut as soon as possible, and Democrats have consistently supported repeal.  Instead, Rick Scott waited until his election year to conduct a phony victory lap. Once again, Rick Scott has put his personal political advancement over the needs of Florida’s middle class,” said FDP spokesman Joshua Karp
