Rick Scott Dodges Unemployment Website Question
TV reporter Lori Brown tried to get Gov, Rick Scott to give a straight answer about what he was doing to fix Florida's broken unemployment website. Scott refused to answer the question and then cut Brown off.
"The state's unemployment website has been a disaster, what are you doing to make sure this gets solved?" Brown asked Scott. "First off, the most important thing we can do is help people get jobs," said Scott. "What do you want to say to the people who can't pay their bills right now because of this?" Brown asked. "Again, my biggest job is to make sure people can get a job. We have 279,000 job openings in the state. We're recouping money, holding money back from Deloitte to make sure it gets better quickly," said Scott. Deloitte is the company the state paid $63 million for the website. "Isn't it your job to make sure this website is working?" Brown asked Scott. "Excuse me, bye, thank you," Scott said, and then left.Scott has waged a war against the unemployed. Scott failed in his attempt to have people receiving unemployment compensation drug tested. Scott could care less about when the unemployment website is fixed.
