We'll hear Governor DeSantis put the hammer down on local Florida governments, like Orange County, which are mandating that employees be vaccinated against COVID or lose their jobs. DeSantis says they are violating Florida law and will face $5,000 fines for each employee terminated, potentially racking up millions of dollars in fines. Orange County mayor Jerry Demings says his vaccine mandate for county employees is just him fulfilling his responsibility to keep people safe, and that he doesn't know why the Governor doesn't see it that way.
My questions to our team and our listeners: who's side are you on in this vaccine mandate issue? If DeSantis slaps local governments with these massive fines, how will he enforce it and collect the money? If he does collect the money and local governments go bankrupt as a result, will DeSantis be committing political suicide because local services and quality of life will be impacted for Republicans as well as Democrats?
