Video: Senator Simmons Home Rule Hypocrisy

For many years Republicans claimed “government closer to the people is the best government of all.” But today’s power grabbing, self-entitled Florida Republican legislative majority think the best government is the one they control. Watch Senator David Simmons, long considered a reasonable moderate when compared to many of his GOP colleagues discuss the need for “uniformity” in law making. The best government cannot be from the feds because they trample on Pam Bondi and Rick Scott’s precious “state’s rights”  while local government cannot be trusted either. Talk about hypocrisy!

Thanks to Amy Ritter and Florida Watch Action for this and all of the excellent Adams Street Project videos we have brought you during session.
