Governor Rick Scott of Florida, to be precise. Because of the funding cuts he ordered, dozens of innocent children were sent to live with child abusers, drug addicts, psychopaths and killers. Because of Rick Scott, these poor kids are dead.
Here is one example of his demands that children be put at risk. Scott claimed that cutting funds to the agency that is supposed to protect children was necessary to “create jobs”. He must have been thinking of jobs for undertakers, grave-diggers, and coffin makers.
And he wants more cuts. Yes, you read that correctly. Even though his hands are stained with the blood of innocent little kids, Rick Scott is OK with seeing even more of them die, so long as he and his cronies can pad their already-enormous bank accounts.
Gentle Reader, what does it say about a man, when he thinks it acceptable to add to his fortune by allowing children to suffer and die? This latter-day Ebeneezer Scrooge endorses the deaths of hundreds of Tiny Tims, but alas, there are no ghosts with sufficient power to awaken Governor Scott’s conscience. And so the children of Florida can’t count on a happy ending to their stories of anguish, privation, and abuse. Not this Christmas. Maybe never.
