How does a corporate welfare slush fund keep Florida safe? It doesn’t, but that hasn’t stopped Governor Rick Scott from claiming that ending Enterprise Florida will put our nation at risk.
Concerned Veterans for American Coalitions Director Diego Echeverri isn’t buying this flimsy argument. “Governor Scott’s illogical argument that a program entirely designed to line the pockets of wealthy business owners would somehow hurt our national defense shows just how desperate he has become in this fight,” he said.
Echeverri said the Florida Defense Alliance is a product of Enterprise Florida, not our military, and it is “mostly used to preserve the jobs of government bureaucrats.”
Instead of helping protect Florida, wasteful spending programs like Enterprise Florida could actually threaten our national security. The national debt weakens our economy and military readiness. CVA will continue to urge lawmakers to eliminate Enterprise Florida, which puts special interests ahead of the needs of hardworking veterans.
