Who is on our side?
Oh yeah. You better believe it.
There are 27 members of the Florida Legislature who voted 100% to protect and expand the middle class. They are Champions of Florida's Middle Class, and their unwavering support deserves to be recongnized.
Florida Watch Action, Progress Florida, and America Votes have come together in recognition of these 27 legislators, because they are the Middle Class Champions who said NO to Rick Scott's destructive budget – which dramatically underfunds schools, cuts hundreds of millions from health care for our children, seniors, and the disabled, and costs thousands of jobs. Meanwhile, the budget creates more than $100 million in new special interest tax giveaways.
But this about more than just one vote. From prison privatization to attacks on women's health, the Middle Class Champions fought back. From parent trigger, to unfair foreclosures, to intrusive drug testing, these 27 legislators cast their votes against Rick Scott's radical agenda.
