In the last debate with Charlie Crist, Rick Scott said "How would I know?" when asked what the minimum wage, which makes him cringe, should be. It was perhaps one of the first times Scott was being honest since he became governor. Not only does he have no clue what minimum wage should be, he also doesn't care. Hasn't even considered it. He's just taking the party line on minimum wage from the likes of his new cheerleader, fundraiser and BFF Chris Christie, who recently said he was just plain tired of hearing about minimum wage.
As you'll see in the video below, so is Rick Scott. Watch as he ignored and tried to drown out a working mom who tried to ask him why he won't support minimum wage. Instead of listening to her, he started shouting out talking points about Charlie Crist. When that didn't work he got an assist from his pal Will Weatherford, the guy who cares as much about Medicaid expansion as Scott cares about either Medicaid or minimum wage: Zip. Apparently Weatherford's new job is personal aide to the governor, ushering Scott out of uncomfortable situations and away from all the questions he won't answer.
Scott has gone from saying "How would I know?" to "I can't hear you!" when the topic of decent wages comes up, and it's no surprise he had to flee under Weatherford's protective wing. Not only did Scott completely ignore and dismiss this woman's question, but he did a little projecting about himself while trying to score points against Crist.
Listen as Scott says this about Charlie Crist, "He can't win talking about issues people care about," while Scott completely ignores this working mom and the issue she cares about: Minimum wage.
That projection on Crist speaks volumes about Scott himself. Scott's rewritten his job description as not talking about, or taking action towards the issues Floridians care about, and voters need to get to the polls and make sure Scott can't win because of it.
