Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) got an earful during a visit to a Starbucks in Gainesville, Florida, Tuesday, when Cara Jennings confronted him for refusing to expand Medicaid to low-income residents.
“You cut Medicaid, so I couldn’t get Obamacare,” Jennings shouted. “You’re an asshole. You don’t care about working people. You should be ashamed to show your face around here.”
Stephen Bender uploaded the Starbucks confrontation and said Cara Jennings started out by asking Scott why he signed a bill last month that cuts off state funding for preventive health services to clinics that also perform abortions.
Governor Voldemort told the woman that he had created 1 million jobs but Jennings disagreed saying “A million jobs? Who here has a great job?” Jennings continues, “You strip women of access to public health care. Shame on you, Rick Scott!” she yelled as the governor and his team left the coffee shop. “We depend on those services. Rich people like you don’t know what to do! When poor people like us need health services, you cut them. Shame on you, Rick Scott! You’re an embarrassment to our state.”
Scott then ran out of the Starbucks without even going through with his purchase.
