Not-So-Merry Christmas for Florida Democrats

Florida Democrats love to hate on Gov. Ron DeSantis. This Christmas, these same Democrats like AG Commissioner Nikki Fried hope that Santa Clause drops a healthy lump of coal in “Neon Dion” DeSantis's stocking.

Of course, they do. DeSantis is their worst nightmare and not afraid to stand up to them or the media.

With 2022 looking to be the worse election year for Democrats to date (all their fault), expect a scorched earth campaign against DeSantis and other Republicans, not only across Florida but across the country.

Democrats will lay it all out on the line. They have no other choice but to do so.

Feliz Navidad. Merry Christmas.

Wait, There's More...

Florida Rep. Greg Steube recently expressed to The Floridian exactly how he felt about his Democratic colleagues in the U.S. Congress.

When he isn't hitting a homerun over the fence at Nationals Park in his spare time, Rep. Steube is ripping Democrats over their betrayal of the American people by pushing "terrible policies."

“The American people are tired of the Left’s broken promises and messages of hateful division. House Democrats failed their voters, and through their terrible policies, they hurt the American people. Not only did Biden and House Democrats evade calls for bipartisanship, but they passed the most radical legislation our country has ever seen."- Rep. Greg Steube

An energy crisis

A historic border crisis

A national security crisis spurred by Afghanistan

What's next?

Rep. Val Demings-If you or someone you love is struggling with their mental health this holiday season, please know you are not alone.

Rep. Mike Waltz-The Biden admin has made it their #1 priority to root out extremism in our military. Yet, data shows 0.007% of service members participated in extremist activity this year. We should stay vigilant but there are FAR more dangerous threats, like China, Russia, terrorism & more!

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz-When it comes to taking on #BigPharma, cutting child care costs or making the rich pay their fair share, Republicans have no plan. Absolutely nothing. @HouseDemocrats have a great plan, and I'll fight to pass as much of the #BuildBackBetterAct as I can.
