In response to Rick Scott’s economic announcement this morning, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Spokesman David Bergstein released the following statement:
“Rick Scott’s self-serving politics have left over half of Floridians with fewer jobs and some of the lowest wages in the entire country. His slush fund that he’s discussing today is just another way Scott’s hurting working families — draining funding from public schools in order to give another handout to his political cronies and allies. Rick Scott wants power, money and to advance his own political agenda — while Floridians who actually work for a living are paying the price.”
SCOTT’S SELF-SERVING RECORD ON JOBS: UNDER SCOTT, OVER HALF OF FLORIDA COUNTIES LOST JOBS, STATE AT BOTTOM OF NATION IN WAGES.
