Ron DeSantis is crushing all the coronavirus regulations that are within his power.
His last move made him big enemies.
Ron DeSantis threw down the gauntlet with seven words that stunned his audience.
There’s absolutely no excuse for the covid panic that Democrats are still trying to stir up for their own political gain.
At this point pretty much every American has had the option to get the vaccine if they desire and over 80% of seniors have gotten at least one shot.
It’s time to get rid of all covid regulations and allow people to make the individual choice that they feel comfortable with.
But Democrats are still trying to keep the pandemic ongoing because they see it as the opportunity to permanently shift America’s policy.
That’s why Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis rolling back covid policies in a rational manner makes them so angry.
In his Wednesday press conference DeSantis told Floridians that, May will be the last month they can collect unemployment benefits without proving they are looking for work, saying, “you need to be looking for work.”
“Normally when you’re getting unemployment, the whole idea is that it’s temporary, and you need to be looking for work to be able to get off unemployment,” DeSantis said. “It was a disaster, so we suspended those job search requirements. I think it’s pretty clear now — we have an abundance of job openings.”
“We absolutely can put more people to work,” he continued. “The demand is there. Businesses want to hire more people, and I think we can go in that direction very soon.”
Florida currently has a 4.7% in March, well below the national average of 6.1%.
“I think now we’re in just a different situation, you have a surplus of jobs, particularly in restaurant, lodging, hospitality, that people want to hire,” DeSantis said. “I mean, you see the signs all over the place. Look, that’s a good problem to have. But we also just want to make sure, like, look, if you’re really unemployed, can’t get a job, that’s one thing. But making sure that you’re doing your due diligence to look for work, and making sure those incentives align, better.”
The Tampa Bay Times reported that DeSantis worried if there are people taking advantage of changes in the unemployment system.
“I don’t think it’s manipulation. You know, whatever the benefits are, people are availing themselves of it. That’s not their fault.” DeSantis said according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Instead of sending money for people to sit at home DeSantis said that Florida will be sending $1,000 bonuses to every first responder who worked during the pandemic. “Some want to defund the police. In Florida, we’re funding them & then some… ” he tweeted.
