THE BIG LIE.
Florida's legislature will never do anything to make life better for people.
Like going after the primary polluters?
GOP= GAME OF PREDATORS, PROFITEERS, POLLUTERS, PUTIN.
They are all full of s**t ... As long as Florida residents keep putting these crooks into office - nothing will be done. Eventually all of this environmental damage will seriously affect Florida's economy - since it relies heavily on tourism.
I'll believe it when I see it actually happening. They are so corrupt, they will say anything
Florida’s infants and toddlers face the greatest risk of being undercounted in the upcoming 2020 Census — an error that could cost the state “staggering” amounts of federal funding for everything from schools to children’s health care to food stamps.
Republican politicians don't care about any of that. Even if they all were counted they'll make it impossible for any at risks families to get any social help. There's a big gaping hole in the safety net.
What can we do?
Why and how did this undercounting happen? Who is responsible?
This is going to screw Florida over, with everything from school funding to addressing the costs of climate change. It’s going to get really expensive to live in Florida over the next couple decades.
If FL Republican politicians do not like the federal gov’t, then can they report that there’s no one here?
GOP politicians who run Florida don't give a damn so long as these children are minorities. Since when do conservatives want more representation of minorities?
Florida’s Senate Infrastructure and Security committee has approved modest efforts to expand background checks to include more gun buyers. The NRA might be mad but we’re surely not. ... See MoreSee Less
"That’s the least the Legislature should do."
And that's exactly what the GOP-dominated legislative *will* do: the least.
She is mad...as in crazy.
All people need to have a background check performed when a gun is purchased or transferred publically or privately!
Marion hammer condones the murder of children thru her lobby efforts for the NRA. The NRA has deviated so far from what they used to be that now are nothing more than a domestic terrorist group because of extremists like hammer.
Marion Hammer needs to go home! She is heartless and hateful!
Florida’s Supreme Court ruled Thursday that convicted felons must pay fines and other fees related to their sentences before voting, concluding a legal controversy that pitted the state government against voting rights advocacy groups.
A bad harbinger of things to come with the Florida Supreme Court now stacked with conservatives.
I never ask for material things but this time my prayer is : “Lord, let me win the lottery before the election so that I can pay ALL of the outstanding fines BEFORE the crooked repugnant court circumvents another law and ruling just to deny people the right o vote”.
If you can’t beat them legitimately...you cheat! As someone who worked on Amendment 4 “paying fines” was not included in it!
Stacked courts. Why we all need to get rid of McConnell. Donate to Amy McGrath's campaign.
Of. Purse these foul Republican representatives of haters did this.
Republicans at work. Fess ‘tis is filling our courts with fight wing judges😟
DeSantis is the most recent to appoint court justices. Blame him.
There was absolutely nothing about paying back fines when we all voted for this bill!! How dare they sneak this into law after the fact!!! Just another way of gerrymandering!!! So angry right now!!
Written by Repugs, so what else is new and now we know who is in charge of the Repuke elected courts.
That is Not what was voted for and The People spoke and You twist it so that they won’t be able to afford to vote! Hypocrites and vote them out‼️
It's sad, but not surprising. A lot of us wondered about this from the beginning, and If you go back and look at the language of the amendment as it appeared on the ballot, it's hard to disagree, esp. when it comes to restitution.
This one needs to go to scotus.
Can there be a Go Fund Me set up?
Guess that will some day apply to the current President and his administration.
What is the LOWV stance on this, I mean I clearly see that that they prefer that felons can vote without having to pay fees, but why? Does this include restitution? I’d like to read more about it if anyone could send me some links.
Will this be appealed to the Supreme Court?
When Florida residents voted on restoring voting rights to felons who have served their time in prison, we did not vote to make them pay fees in order to vote. The Florida legislature added this afterward, and it amounts to a poll tax, which is against the law!
24th Amendment much?
This is NOT what I voted for. Perhaps we should ask the voters what they envisioned for the former felons.
Jim Crow ... still finding ways to disenfranchise ... Undemocratic... un-American... Politics stepping all over the constitution, again. 😢😢
