In Case You Missed It… Gov. Rick Scott in Wall Street Journal: Congress Should Not Act Like a Wax Museum
Wall Street Journal
Op-Ed: Governor Rick Scott
May 29, 2018
A class of politicians has emerged in our nation—one that makes Congress their permanent home and has no accountability or desire to achieve anything noteworthy for the people they serve back home. (“A Radical Idea: Congress Acts,” Review, May 19).
A recent example of Washington’s inaction happened right here in my own state. Sen. Bill Nelson and 11 other members of Florida’s congressional delegation sent a letter urging the state of Florida to do their jobs for them by passing state-level health-care policy because of their own self-admitted failures at the federal level. This attempted handoff of responsibility is exactly what we cannot stand for from our leaders in Congress.
Government can move efficiently and secure results—if it has the right leaders.
