I would like to be the first writer to call for the recall of Gov. Rick Scott. I hope that I am completely wrong, and that this man will become a good governor. However, while not a gambling man, I would put up a tidy sum that he won't be.
This former CEO of a company that defrauded Medicare for the largest sum in history spent more than $75 million of his personal fortune in the gubernatorial campaign. Who knows why?
His platform was based on sound bites where he declared that he would cut taxes (corporate and property), eliminate unneeded state regulations, balance the budget, and create thousands of jobs, with the slogan "Let's get to work." It's pretty hard to beat that deal, unless you really think it through. When questioned about the Medicare situation, Mr. Scott would refuse to talk about it, or say he was not personally knowledgeable of it. These are both very disturbing responses for someone who aspires to govern the fourth-largest state in the country.
The governor is certainly starting to make good on his promises.
On March 11, Gov. Scott defended his plan to cut budgets to child welfare and education in order to create 700,000 jobs. Not only is this unconscionable for our children, but is absurd as thousands will lose their jobs. Are we then to presume that private-sector jobs will be created to employ these laid-off professionals? What kind of jobs comprise the 700,000 proposed?
While I believe that the Legislature will stop some of his plans, we might be just seeing the tip of the iceberg with this misguided individual. We need to have a recall. Let's get to work!
