DeSantis Outlines Plan to Use Fed Funds to Pay Vax Mandate Penalties

Every now and then, a politicking plan comes along that is so purely, undeniably American, that it deserves to be exalted.

Ron DeSantis has just outlined such a plan.  It would move to tears our founding fathers, those tossed tea to the sea, and stood up to tell us all that we were deserved of liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

And that because the Florida Governor has now found a way to use the federal government’s own money to pay the fines of Florida businesses who are penalized for not adhering to the federal government’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

Speaking at a dinner hosted by the National Federation of Independent Business’ Florida chapter this week, the Florida governor said, “If it gets to the point where they are trying to enforce, my view would be ‘don’t comply’ and we would support the Legislature taking some of the stimulus money and using it to pay off the fines that business incur.”

This isn’t the first time DeSantis has posited the idea either.

According to Politico’s Florida Playbook:

A defense fund— This is the second time DeSantis has floated the idea of having Florida taxpayers offset any fines (a “defense fund,” he called it previously) placed on businesses, if they do not comply with the rule put in place by the federal agency that oversees workplace safety rules. The governor noted the law is on hold due to an appeals court ruling and he predicted that “ultimately, it’s going down.”

Voila!  There you have it folks!  The complete and utter gumming-up of the entire federal apparatus.  Just money being printed and shipped around, only to be shipped back again until we all have enough of it to stop going looking for it.

DeSantis has found the cheat code here, folks.
