The self-interested bully awarded his spoils by Florida Republican legislature, Republican Governor
Floridians are further impoverished today.



.....

But Alexander's spoils break the mold with a new university and a new toll road that cannot be justified and will cost taxpayers untold millions for decades. His Senate colleagues and a public outcry from Tampa Bay prevented him from gutting USF's budget. But unless something changes in the last week of the legislative session, lawmakers appear ready to give in to the bully. They would build a new university while cutting thousands of kids from subsidized after-school care and reducing Medicaid payments to hospitals treating the poor. They would build a new toll road but spend no money to buy environmentally sensitive lands or match private donations to build university buildings. The priorities are upside down. ---- JD Alexander is the face of what's wrong with Florida

Legislatively-crafted theft by a self-serving, greed-driven Republican bully. Enabled by a nest of Republican vipers controlling the House and Senate. And rubber-stamped by a criminal fraudster governor.


Floridians and the rest of the nation will be paying for this criminal gang of Republicans' thieving debauchery for many years to come.

But, somehow, they repeatedly tell us that we had/have a "very popular" ex-governor. So we should be happy.


And he is from a family who "kept us safe".








Somehow, that triggers massive flashbacks.

What has happened to this country over the last decade will haunt us for the rest of our lives.
