Rick Scott must be the bottom of the barrel as far as governors go.

But of coarse he will be. The Bat Boy Nightmare continues on and I can only hope that he'll be voted out of the Governors office. I don't think this State could stand another 4 years of his crap. He has given tax breaks to the rich at the expense of our schools, he is the environmentalist worse nightmare, he protects his wealthy buddies while destroying the average person.

People, animals, environment have all suffered under this Plutocrat who cares only for his own self gain and his buddies. Remember the illegal stance he took at having everyone take a urine test that received any type of State aid and he wanted to push it upon the State Employees too. That all those urine tests that were at the taxpayers expense, unless drugs were found, went into his pocket as he, err his wife. To get around the loop hole he sold his shares to her like she wouldn't share the $ with him. Drug test were done by the company he, err his wife, owned. It was proven these drug tests saved no money as so few actually tested for being on drugs but it cost the taxpayers a lot of money. It was also struck down by the Court as being illegal to do but he still got to keep the financial gain for his act.

Estimations are that it will take a good 20 years or more to fix all the messes he has done, and some can never be fixed that has happened to the environment.

Pardon my French, but Rick Scott is a total sh*t. Was, is and will always be until the day he dies or leaves office which, hopefully, will be soon, leave office that is.

How do Americans keep getting suckered into allowing privatization when there is now enough data to prove conclusively that it NEVER saves money, ALWAYS costs more money than letting the government just do it, and besides costing more money, the cost is ALWAYS for less service? Maybe Rick Scott really is Lord Voldemort and has cast mind controlling spells, or at least the Dark Mark, on the legislature. Thank God there are still some like Dandelion who resist. BTW, Phil. I'm afraid leaving office won't cure him, though hopefully it will remove his influence. Though with Lord Voldemort you never know. Alexandria, the competition is so keen for the bottom o the gubernatorial barrel I can only say he is in the top six contenders for that "honor."

the South is the poverty belt, and the proud, flag waving, ignoramuses keep electing scum like Scott, Jindal, Perry, Rubio, Jeb the Bush, Cruz, and so it goes!

Noted. Sadly this is too normal. Look at President Obama he has decided to allow Seismic testing in the Atlantic, this will kill thousands of ocean wildlife. The noise is so loud it is deafening. Whales will wind up on the land others will not be able to feed or find their young and they will die. You can not trust any politician

Rick Scott and the people who do his fund raisers are clearly birds of a feather, lawbreakers and cheats.
