A morning trip to Starbucks’s for Bat Boy, a/k/a Florida Governor Rick Scott, turned into an impromptu constituent’s questions and comments event
“You cut Medicaid so I couldn’t get Obamacare,” Cara Jennings told the visibly shaken governor as he waited to pay for his coffee. “You’re an asshole. You don’t care about the working people. You should be ashamed to show your face around here.”
When Scott attempted to placate Jennings with the defense that his governorship created a million jobs, Jennings refused to back down and continued with her stunning reproach.
“A million jobs?” Jennings responded. “Who here has a great job or is looking forward to finishing school? Do you really feel like you have a job coming up?”
“You strip women of access to public health care. Shame on you, Rick Scott!”
This caused Bat Boy to decide he didn’t need coffee after all, or at least he didn’t need coffee from that particular Starbucks (something tells me Gainesville isn’t a single shop town)…so he skulked off, having learned a bit about what democracy looks like.
