When Rick Scott's claims of job creation weren't backed up by actual numbers, he just revised the math. He also ignored the fact that many of the jobs that were created were low paying jobs, and jobs likely without benefits, thanks to his corporate friendly policies. Many workers in Florida are barred from taking paid sick days, just for one example, while others were moved into part-time positions in order to avoid providing health care and other benefits. With more low paying jobs, there are more who could qualify for Medicaid, but Scott and the legislature said "no" to that too. Finally, for those who have lost their jobs altogether, Scott's botched unemployment website has made it nearly impossible to get benefits.
Yet Rick Scott chooses to hide all those factors in a little box, wrap them up, and put a "jobs and economy savior" bow on it.
Now, not only has his job creation claim gone down in flames, but his platitudes on what he's done for Florida's economy are tanking too.
