Good Wednesday morning.
It was such a busy Tuesday in the Legislature; we’re just gonna dive right into the news and notes.
— SITUATIONAL AWARENESS —
—@JesseRodriguez: There were no COVID-related deaths yesterday in New York City, where the vaccination rate is over 90%.
—@FPWellman: There’s no going “back to normal.” There’s no “overreacting to (Donald) Trump.” There’s no “moving past 1/6.” History is littered with examples of how failure to stand up to political violence and growing authoritarianism ends with them in power and millions suffer. We need change now!
—@BennyJohnson: (Ron) DeSantis is the perfect example of how every state should be led. He puts Americans First, he keeps Florida open, and lets Floridians live free, and as a result, his state has one of the lowest COVID rates. This is how all of America should be.
It was a pleasure to light the menorah on the second night of Hanukkah. @FLCaseyDeSantis and I wish all of our Jewish friends celebrating in Florida and around the world a Happy Hanukkah. pic.twitter.com/a3mpVCidRa

—@Annette_Taddeo: News flash, sweetie: Democrats don’t suffer from blind allegiance to blowhards who emulate dictators, like your boss. We support policies like expanding Medicaid and standing up for small businesses — things GOP voters want but have no chance to get under little Ronnie’s regime.
—@IlleanaGarciaUSA: As the child of an immigrant who escaped the terrors of # for a better life, I ask others to step up & say NO to delisting #, a well-known terrorist organization enabling other totalitarian regimes like #, #, and #
Congratulations to my friend @adbasford on another successful @FlaFarmBureau day – his final day at the Bureau before a new adventure with @VoiceofFLBiz where I know he will be an asset to their team and @BrewsterBevis …….
