DeathSantis doesn’t care the cost to the people. People mean nothing to the Republican ruling class. DeathSantis is sending a warning shot across the bow of big business, large corporations, support us with money and keep your mouth shut or we hurt you. Even when Disney said they would work to overturn the don’t say gay bill the Republicans did not turn on them. Disney bankrolls a lot of the Republican party in Florida. DeathSantis is sure he is going to be President after the 2024 election. He is raising money like a pirate. But then Disney threatened to withhold the donations they were giving the Republicans. Granted they said the donations they were giving both parties. That is when the Republican shit hit the fan. That is when at the orders of emperor DeathSantis the Republican cult wrote the bill taking away the special district Disney had. That it hurts the public of that area doesn’t matter. What is important is the money must flow.
The Orlando Sentinel reports:
Dissolving Walt Disney World’s Reedy Creek Improvement District could saddle local taxpayers with about $1 billion in debt and leave local governments scrambling with how to take over vital services for Florida’s top tourist attraction.
What happens next is unclear, but Orange County’s tax collector and other opponents of the bill say ending Reedy Creek could lead to higher taxes for Orange and Osceola residents. The Legislature did not conduct an economic study on the ramifications of dissolving the district.
Legislators spent only two days examining the bill, unveiled on Tuesday, providing little opportunity for public input. Reedy Creek collects about $164 million in property taxes to maintain roads, utilities and other services, which is almost entirely paid by Disney.
Orlando’s ABC News affiliate reports:
One of the biggest myths circulating on the internet is that the end of Reedy Creek will finally force Disney to pay its fair share of taxes, boosting the economies of Florida and the counties its resorts are located in.
Let’s dispel that rumor right now: not only is it wrong, it’s the opposite that will take effect.
Despite zero debate or public comment, and the near-total opposition of Central Florida’s delegation to this maneuver, Orange and Osceola County taxpayers will shoulder the hit alone, leaving both counties staring at financial ruin.
He doesn’t really even care about hurting people, he wants to look tuff & manly, in preparation for his campaign to be Trump 2.0.
Yes, he only cares about his own selfish political ambitions. Fuck the people and businesses of Florida or anyone else. It’s all about him. He is the “new Trump”.
He wants to own the Libs, and make everyone do what he wants.
So far the Republicans in the legislature are following his dictates.
