Let’s get Republicans to take a stand on Rick Scott’s advice on the Stimulus package

Former Florida Republican Governor and current Florida Senator took time to express his opinion in the USA Today to say that, in regards to the massively popular Stimulus bill, states should reject the money and

quit recklessly spending other people’s money.”

To which I have only one thing to say to all other Republicans in the country:

do you agree with Rick Scott? He is, after all, widely seen as a hopeful for the GQP 2024’s Presidential race… but out crazying each other has it’s limits when it comes to the Stimulus,

even Florida Governor and another 2024 GQP hopeful for President, Ron DeSantis knows this is a bridge too far:

The Senate didn’t correct the fact that Florida is getting a lot less than what we would be entitled to on a per capita basis,” DeSantis, in an apparent jab at Scott and Sen. Marco Rubio, said Monday at a press conference.

The polarization on spending comes amid rumors that both DeSantis and Scott have eyes on the White House in 2024. At odds on numerous issues, DeSantis has for almost a year blamed Scott for the massive failures of the state’s unemployment system, which was developed and implemented when Scott served as governor.

In the immortal words of Major Biden after his biting incident :

Ruh-Roh!

Can someone see the rift coming as Republicans both try to hate Biden’s stimulus while at the same time telling people not to like free money in the time of a pandemic?

Call your local Republican now and get them to go on record on Rick Scott’s idea…

or just ask them why Republicans hate giving you money.

    I’d like to see Republicans like Scott and DeSantis ( or any local GOP legislator, for that matter) explain why their state will be refusing this tainted money.

    GOP Lawmakers Say $1.9 Trillion Stimulus Bill Offers Too Much Support. Most Voters Don’t Agree

    A 45 percent plurality of registered voters in the March 6-8 poll said the COVID-19 bill, which is headed for a House vote Wednesday after surviving trims from moderate Senate Democrats, offers the right amount of support, while another 24 percent said it doesn’t offer enough. Just 1 in 5 voters said the package, which enjoys wide bipartisan backing, offers too much support….

    Over half of Republican voters do not agree with GOP lawmakers that the bill offers excessive support: 35 percent said the package is the right amount and 19 percent said it doesn’t go far enough. Another 35 percent of Republicans said the support goes too far.
