Democrats are increasingly worried about Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as a threat to their grip on power.
Governor DeSantis slapped them with more bad news that gave Democrats something else to panic over.
That happened when Ron DeSantis hit Joe Biden with a legal challenge that had all hell breaking loose.
The response to the coronavirus pandemic illustrates the biggest difference between Joe Biden and Ron DeSantis, and also why Democrats fear DeSantis as a candidate in the 2024 election.
Joe Biden thinks unelected bureaucrats like Dr. Fauci should hold unlimited power to impose command and control policies to shut down the economy, end human social interaction and force the public to wear masks via endless mandates.
Governor DeSantis quickly rejected lockdowns and never imposed a mask mandate.
Instead, Governor DeSantis believed it was the government’s job to protect the vulnerable, give citizens the best information possible to assess their risk, and keep the economy open so life could resume as close to normal as humanly possible.
Despite an unrelenting media smear campaign, Governor DeSantis was proved correct as his state’s economy boomed and the state performed better than blue states like New York and California which lived under lockdown and mask mandates for more than a year.
The latest flashpoint is the Biden administration trying to keep the cruise ship industry shut down despite widely available vaccines.
Governor DeSantis announced his intention to sue the Centers for Disease Control over their destructive scheme to keep the cruise industry twisting in the wind.
“The main reason for that is because the federal government and the CDC has locked down this industry for over a year. This is not reasonable. This is not rational,” DeSantis declared.
Florida—which is home to Port Canaveral and Port Everglades—has the right not to have the federal government destroy its economy.
“We believe that it is time for us to vindicate the state’s rights and the rights of the state in court and also vindicate the livelihoods of the tens of thousands of Floridians who depend on this industry,” DeSantis said, adding that “help is on the way.”
DeSantis warned the Biden administration that he would not back down one inch in this fight.
“We’re going to keep at this until we finally get it open,” DeSantis continued.
DeSantis warned that if the Biden administration keeps this sector of the economy shut down, the industry would migrate to another country.
“The question is, are we going to do it out of Florida, which is the number one place to do it in the world, or are they going to be doing it out of the Bahamas or other locations?” DeSantis exclaimed.
The Biden administration’s lockdown regime threatens jobs and DeSantis promised he would fight for the workers of Florida.
“I think that the answer to that question should be obvious for Floridians. We want our folks to be able to go back to work, we want to be able to stand up to them and their families and so today we’re doing that,” DeSantis concluded.
