Florida Woman Rips Rick Scott At Gainesville Starbucks And It's Glorious

Florida woman gets rare opportunity to lay into government official regarding Obamacare and it is glorious.

Talk about being in the right place at the right time! One Florida woman got the chance few of us do - to scream at a politician who did us wrong... in a public place... on camera!

Florida Politics reports that during a java break at a Gainesville Starbucks, Gov. Rick Scott had the misfortune of ordering the most complicated coffee possible and while waiting for his steaming hot cup of joe, managed to be seated near an angry woman who laid into him about his refusal to expand Medicaid to low-income Floridians.

Thankfully, someone grabbed their handy cell phone and recorded the video so we can all watch this woman, a hero for low income citizens, tell Rick Scott what we all think:

“You cut Medicaid so I couldn’t get Obamacare. You’re an asshole. You don’t care about working people. You should be ashamed to show your face around here.”

Scott responded with the typical "job creator" lie and said that he made "1 million jobs".

Hero lady's response was priceless?

“A million jobs? Great, who here has a great job? I was looking forward to finishing school. You really feel you have a job coming up? Shame on you Rick Scott. We depend on those services. Rich people like you don’t know what to are an embarrassment to our state”

The woman was later identified as Cara Jennings, who was a former Lake Worth City Commissioner and former founding member of the “Radical Cheerleaders,” a mostly-female punk attired group of protesters for a variety of political causes.

Clearly, Jennings was in the right place at the right time to live out a dream many have - getting to shred a nasty politician, in public and on video.
