Florida voter ripped into the Republican governor at a local Starbucks – and it was glorious.
When Florida Governor Rick Scott stopped in a Gainesville Starbucks on Tuesday, he got a lot more than a latte.
While the Republican governor was in line, a former city commissioner Cara Jennings started yelling at him for opposing Medicaid expansion – which prevented her from getting health insurance via the Affordable Care Act.
“You’re an a**hole!” she yelled. “You don’t care about working people! You should be ashamed to show your face around here!”
A defensive Scott shot back and said that as governor, he’s created one million jobs, but his remark only fueled her fire.
“You strip women of access to public health care. Shame on you, Rick Scott!” she yelled as Scott and his team quickly left. “We depend on those services. Rich people like you don’t know what to do! When poor people like us need health services, you cut them. Shame on you, Rick Scott! You’re an embarrassment to our state!”
