Rick Scott: ‘Not Fair’ to Bail Out Indebted States via Coronavirus Bill

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) said on Monday that it is not fair for taxpayers to bail out indebted states, such as New York, Illinois, and California, via a future coronavirus package.

Scott slammed a Democrat proposal to use federal funds to aid struggling state and local governments, which could reach as high as $700 billion.

“It’s not fair to the taxpayers of Florida. We sit here, we live within our means, and then New York, Illinois, California, and other states don’t. And we’re supposed to go bail them out? That’s not right,” Scott told reporters.

These blue states were well on their way to bankruptcy before the Whu Flu hit. There is no reason the federal government should bail them out.

They're like your unemployed bum brother-in-law who lives in your garage and eats your food and always has beer & weed money, but won't touch your lawnmower.

Everyone is supposed to "live within their mean" except for giant banks and corporations requiring bailouts.
