Ron DeSantis is known for his willingness to go toe-to-toe with Democrats and the left-wing media.
His wife Casey is also a fighter.
And Casey DeSantis just revealed one major crisis Democrats’ lockdowns created that Joe Biden refuses to admit.
Ron DeSantis gained the national spotlight during the pandemic when he became the first Governor to reject Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci’s COVID rules and restrictions.
DeSantis refused to enforce economy-crushing lockdowns and kept schools open while other states were shut down.
In February of 2021, when the CDC updated its guidelines to encourage schools to stay closed, DeSantis ripped the decision as a “disgrace.”
“Every single parent in this state has a right to send their kid to in-person instruction,” DeSantis said in February. “We have done it the right way; we are not going to turn back.”
“We have been open,” he declared, before adding that “they will remain open, and we are not turning back.”
Of course, Ron DeSantis took fire from the Democrats and left-wing media over his decision to not only allow schools to open, but to also ban masks and vaccine mandates as well.
After the pandemic ended, DeSantis’ pro-freedom policies were proven correct.
Today, the Florida Governor is more popular than ever.
However, Joe Biden refuses to admit he made the wrong decision by allowing the teachers union to write the CDC guidelines on reopening schools.
Instead, Biden places the blame on “the pandemic,” not his horrendous decision to force schools closed.
“Due to the pandemic, kids are behind in math and reading. We know how to help bridge this gap. I’m calling on schools to use American Rescue Plan funds to expand tutoring, summer learning, and afterschool programs and to provide 250,000 more tutors and mentors for our kids,” Biden wrote on Twitter.

But like her husband, Casey DeSantis is willing to call out the Democrats and left-wing media over their failed policies.
And in a response on Twitter, Casey DeSantis ripped the Biden administration for failing to mention the “real reason” why American K-12 government school students “are on average two to four months behind in reading and math because of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
“The latest ‘report’ from the Biden administration ignores the real reason for catastrophic learning loss: Democrat lockdowns,” Casey DeSantis wrote on Twitter.
She then pointed out that her husband refused to follow Biden’s recommendations and kept schools open in Florida.
“While other states were locking people down, in Florida @RonDeSantisFL lifted people up – Kids were in school, in person,” Casey DeSantis wrote.

Thanks to Ron DeSantis keeping schools open, students in Florida are doing better than places where lockdowns were enforced.
According to Florida Education Commissioner Manny Diaz Jr., “Florida students are not falling behind in math and reading because Ron DeSantis kept schools open and rejected lockdowns.”
“In fact, we’re closing achievement gaps among African American, white, and Hispanic students,” Diaz Jr. added.
Ron DeSantis made a bold decision to stand by his pro-freedom policies during the pandemic.
And that is why the people of Florida continue to fare better off than the rest of the country in virtually every category.
