Let’s imagine that the state of Florida paid two thousand people over a hundred thousand dollars each to dig holes and then fill them in. That sounds irresponsible, right? Rick Scott’s job creation record is worse.
And yet Governor Scott seems strangely unconcerned that rich people took his state’s money and then did next to nothing with it. You almost get the impression that throwing tax money at rich people was the point, and he just dangled the promise of jobs for Floridians because he does not have a doomsday bomb to threaten them with.
