Today, Florida Democratic Party Chair Allison Tant released the following statement on Gov. Rick Scott’s fifth state of the state speech:
“Florida’s middle class is working harder than ever, but they are still struggling to get by, and all Rick Scott and the Republican Party have to offer are misleading claims and hollow promises.
“The truth is, Tallahassee Republicans have shown no interest in expanding access to health insurance, making strong investments in public schools, protecting our environment, or making it easier for Floridians to vote. They are already working overtime to give handouts to the wealthiest special interests, while leaving the middle class with table scraps. Floridians deserve better. Floridians deserve leaders who will put their interests above the special interests.”
