To all my fellow Floridians who are upset because Gov. Rick Scott is slashing budgets check this out ok. If we would have had so many people on an already over loaded system we would not be going broke. Now there are so many people upset and crying that they want their cake and eat it too. With sites like fight for Florida popping up let’s look into what really is going on.

I am going to look at the top 5 of his budget cuts:

  1. Scott is calling for a $703 million cut in school funding. The biggest hit comes to the HBCU Historically black colleges and universities” This I praise him the most on listen education is very important but it is also very over funded well it was. 703 million is only a tiny sliver in the over al education budget.
  2. Eliminating 1,690 jobs from the Department of Corrections, here we have another Dept. that is way over funded. The Dept. of Corrections rakes in billions of dollars of tax payer’s money every year, we have minor offenders going to prison for what? It is and has always been a huge business in Florida and one that really does not benefit Floridians.
  3. An 8,700 overall reduction in the state government workforce In addition to the almost 1,700 jobs Scott wants to eliminate from the Department of Corrections, he plans to cut approximately 7,000 more positions throughout the state government. Govt. is too big you have to rein in the out of controlled non-sense. People that end up losing their Govt. job guess what? I heard today that McDonalds is hiring a job is a job right? Just because you punch a time clock for the State makes you no better than the man on the back of the dump truck.
  4. Tax cuts worth $4 billion, this is the sweetener added to this already wonderful cherry pie! Perhaps the most striking feature of Gov. Scott’s budget plan is a call for tax cuts totaling nearly $4 billion over the next two years. These include a $1.4 billion reduction in property taxes and a 1.5 percent drop in the corporate income tax. Lower the corporate income tax and guess what that will equal to MORE JOBS for the common man.
  5. A $4 billion Medicaid reform to combat rising Medicaid costs, Scott has sought a federal waiver to transfer Florida’s Medicaid recipients into privately run managed-care programs. Doing so would save the state nearly $4 billion over the next two years. Privatize Medicaid this is something that should be done on a Federal level if it was me and I was Gov. I would DO AWAY WITH THIS ALL TOGATHER. We already have a socialistic health care program now ran by the federal Govt.

So there we have it Gov. Rick Scotts budget plan in a nutshell. Listen in order to stop the run away spending and DEBT, Apparently those that are opposing this could care less about debt reduction SPEND SPEND SPEND SPEND well guess what? Charlie Crist is no longer here…..

    This is the best article I have read in a while. Well, the first 2 paragraphs or so, as that’s as far as I could get. A post with so many grammatical errors and typos commenting on how education is over funded? Brilliant!

    Just go ahead and say it. “We don’t need ta be spendun ar hard urned money on no dang schools! Wut good dey ever do us?”
