DeSantis Brings His Extreme Agenda on the Road, Leaves Floridians Behind
Here’s what extreme and harmful policies he’s bringing on the road with him as he abandons Floridians:
- Dangerous Abortion Ban: DeSantis signed an extreme abortion ban that makes no exceptions for rape or incest. He’s so dead set on enforcing this dangerous ban, he even fired an elected state attorney who refused to undermine Floridians’ right to privacy by prosecuting women and doctors who seek or assist in reproductive health care services.
- Punishing anyone who defies his radical agenda: In addition to democratically-elected officials, DeSantis has used the power of his office to punish and censor people, organizations, and businesses in Florida that have spoken out against his political views, including threatening to fine the Special Olympics, vetoing funding for the Tampa Bay Rays, and fighting with Disney.
- Sticking Floridians with the bill for his divisiveness: DeSantis’ discriminatory “Don’t Say Gay” bill is costing good-paying jobs for Florida, as Disney is delaying moving 2,000 new jobs to the state. DeSantis’ retaliation against Disney for speaking out against his divisive agenda is also raising taxes for Floridians to the tune of up to $2 billion, reports say.
DGA Deputy Communications Director Sam Newton said, “Not only is Ron DeSantis sticking Floridians with the cost of his radical agenda — he’s choosing to prioritize spreading his toxic policies across the country instead of finding solutions to the issues impacting working families in Florida. While Florida families are suffering from rising housing and health care costs, DeSantis continues to show he only cares about his own political ambitions.”
