Dems Response PACKAGE
While the Governor painted a rosy picture of Florida besting other states in pandemic response during his State of the State, Florida Democrats immediately responded with a different take.
SOT Rep. Andrew Learned
(D) Riverview
“We’ve lost loved ones, jobs and income.”
In a pre-recorded video, Democrats and progressive activists delivered what they call the ‘People’s Response’.
In it, they demanded changes to the state’s unemployment system.
SOT Rep. Anna Eskamani
(D) Orlando
“As hundreds and thousands of Floridians were personally devastated with the loss of their job at no fault of their own, with bills bearing down on them, they were left to deal with a horribly broken unemployment system.”
In another video, Senate Minority Leader Gary Farmer took aim directly at the Governor’s top agenda items.
SOT Sen. Gary Farmer
(D) Fort Lauderdale
“Our Republican Governor has made the dissolution of your First Amendment rights his top priority and protecting violence inciting hate speech on the internet as his second.”
Stand up
“The lone statewide elected Democrat says the Governor’s priorities are aimed at delivering red meat to his base rather than addressing the everyday needs of Floridians.”
SOT Nikki Fried
(D) Florida Commissioner of Agriculture
“We should not be dividing our state and dividing our country. If we work on issues that are impacting everybody across the board, that’s when we make progress.”
While Democrats are voicing their objections they don’t have the votes to stop anything the Governor and Republican-led legislature want to do.

He’s no longer focusing on the state of Florida, but he’s focusing on his popularity as he’s getting ready for a Presidential run.”
And as a rebuke to local Governments who fought against not requiring masks, the governor is proposing limiting local emergency powers.

 

VO/SOT: HB1 Protest:
About a hundred people arrived at the State Capitol this afternoon to make known their displeasure over proposed anti-rioting legislation.
The measure would increase penalties for non peaceful protests when police are attacked, temporarily deny bail, and punish cities that cut law enforcement funding.
Newly elected St. Petersburg State Representative Michele Rayner called the legislation discriminatory.
Sot: Rep. Michele Rayner
D-St. Petersburg
“You can’t really lobby the way that you want to, but you’re driving from Sarasota, Miami, Jacksonville, Orlando. All of these places. You are doing the work. You are making your voice heard.And I love that you are protesting an anti protesting bill.”
The legislation is a top priority of the Governor and GOP leaders.
It has a hearing in its second of three committees late tomorrow afternoon.
BONUS BITE:” This is an unconstitutional bill. This is an anti Black bill. This is an anti brown bill. This is an anti LBGTQ bill. This is an anti human bill. And not on my watch!”

Dems Response LOOK LIVE
Look live in
“From the Governor’s anti-rioting initiative to his battle with big tech, Florida Democrats say Republicans are putting partisan politics ahead of the needs of Floridians recovering from an unprecedented pandemic.”
In a pre-recorded video, Democrats and progressive activists delivered what they call the ‘People’s Response’.
SOT Rep. Andrew Learned
(D) Riverview
“Instead of helping hardworking Floridians with common sense solutions,  we heard an agenda that was driven by pettiness, imaginary threats and settling partisan political scores. This is a time for leadership, a plan to get COVID-19 under control, to deliver relief for Florida’s families and build back our economy better.”
Look live out
“While Democrats are voicing their objections they don’t have the votes to stop anything the Governor and Republican-led legislature want to do.”
