Ron DeSantis put Joe Biden on notice to keep his inflationary dollars out of Florida

Aug 31, 2023

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis wants to take Joe Biden’s job away from him in January of 2025.

And Joe Biden still offered the Governor hundreds of millions of dollars to spend freely in the Sunshine State.

But Ron DeSantis put Joe Biden on notice to keep his inflationary dollars out of Florida.

From the botched Afghanistan withdrawal to the border crisis to the war in Ukraine, Joe Biden’s Presidency has been a disaster for the country.

Crime is surging in Democrat-run cities all across the nation.

But the skyrocketing inflation kicked off by Joe Biden’s trillions of dollars in socialist spending is one of the top issues for voters.

With the help of Mitch McConnell, Democrats rammed the $750 million misnamed Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) through Congress last year, which was nothing more than the Green New Deal in disguise.

The so-called Inflation Reduction Act pushed inflation to the highest levels in more than 40 years.

One component of the IRA offers hundreds of millions of dollars in federal funds to states in the form of a rebate program for residents who retrofit their homes with “green” appliances.

However, the IRA allows individual Governors to reject these federal funds, which are essentially designed as a backdoor way to push the Left’s climate change agenda on states.

“The Inflation Reduction Act makes Florida eligible for some $350 million in energy efficiency incentives,” POLITICO reported. “But Gov. Ron DeSantis has rejected the funding and other measures, creating the most prominent blockade by any Republican governor against Biden’s economic agenda,” POLITICO continued, before adding “and there’s nothing the White House can do besides hope he changes his mind.”

Joe Biden is furious with DeSantis.

A White House spokesman took a swipe at the Governor without mentioning his name.

“It’s unfortunate that some officials are putting politics ahead of delivering meaningful progress for hard working Americans,” White House spokesman Michael Kikukawa said. “Despite this, President Biden and his administration are working with cities, counties, businesses, nonprofits, and other entities in the Sunshine State to ensure Floridians benefit from the lower costs and stronger economy delivered by his agenda.”

John Podesta, a White House climate and energy adviser and Clinton crony, called it a disservice to low-income households for DeSantis to reject Biden’s handout.

“Governors who are interested in servicing those communities would be well advised to kind of take that money and put those programs into effect, and then make those rebates available,” Podesta told reporters.

Ron DeSantis is a man of principle.

And even though Florida could certainly use a few hundred million dollars, the Governor rejected it because Bidenflation is already high enough.
