A woman upset about losing her healthcare coverage took out her frustration on Florida Governor Rick Scott at a Gainesville Starbucks on April 5, 2016. “Shame on you, Rick Scott. We depend on those services. Rich people like you don’t know what to do,” she screamed at him. The exchange was caught on camera. WARNING: video contains explicit language.
In the video, the woman yells at the governor for opposing Medicaid expansion, calling him an “a——” and spokeswoman Jeri Bustamante tries to intervene before the woman says “I’m not talking to you.”
Scott, for his part, turns to his centerpiece issue as governor.
“We’ve got a million jobs,” he says.
That doesn’t bring the woman to his side. You can watch the whole confrontation, filmed by a man who identifies himself as Stephen Bender.
The woman who yelled at the governor has been identified as Cara Jennings, an activist and a former Lake Worth city commissioner.
Jennings, now a stay-at-home mom, told a TV station that she was on her laptop in Starbucks when she noticed the governor.
