This is how Republicans feel about the lower incomes and working poor.   Republicans feel the government should only give service and benefits to the wealthy, not the average person.   Hugs

Ron DeSantis admits GOP sabotaged unemployment with ‘pointless roadblocks’ so fewer people would sign up

“I think that was the animating philosophy,” said DeSantis. “I mean having studied how it was internally constructed, I think the goal was for whoever designed, it was, ‘Let’s put as many kind of pointless roadblocks along the way, so people just say, oh, the hell with it, I’m not going to do that.’ And, you know, for me, let’s decide on what the benefit is and let’s get it out as efficiently as possible. You know, we shouldn’t necessarily do these roadblocks to do it. So we have cleared a lot of those.”

For months, Florida Republicans have faced allegations that the unemployment system was broken by design. It has been a massive obstacle as the coronavirus pandemic has shuttered businesses and left millions out of work and reliant on unemployment insurance.

    Yep, that’s Ron “Deathsentence” right there, following closely in the footsteps of the former guv, who somehow convinced Floridians that it was a good idea to send him on up to DC, where he could wreak his evil-doings on a National scale. Won’t be too bad, if it’s a one-way ticket…

      Hello Dennis. Scott admitted it was designed to keep the numbers low so he would look good for his run for the Senate. Some areas of Florida are so red that the stupid oozes over the rest of the state. It would be nice if Scott pays a price for his cruelty. Hugs
