Rick Scott Stop A Reminder of His Failed Leadership on Nursing Homes, & Self-Serving Politics

AP: Scott cell-phone a “bottleneck” during recent nursing home hurricane tragedy, Scott “grandstanding to boost his likely Senate campaign.”



In response to Rick Scott’s tone deaf press conference at a nursing facility, Florida Democratic Party spokesman Sebastian Kitchen released the following statement:


“Floridians remember Rick Scott’s real record of making seniors less safe – like how he slashed protections for seniors throughout his administration and how he deleted the voicemail messages he received from nursing homes pleading for help during Hurricane Irma. He didn’t answer their calls and 12 individuals tragically died. But Scott still refused to accept responsibility for his actions, just as he did with Parkland and the FIU bridge. It’s all just more proof Scott is a self-serving politician who cannot be trusted to be honest with the people of Florida. ”
