Former "Anarchist" City Commissioner Tells Off Gov. Rick Scott Over Obamacare In A Florida Starbucks


Gov. Rick Scott got an earful from an angry citizen at a Florida Starbucks Wednesday morning.

ABC Action News in Tampa Bay describes the woman as "a stay at home mom from Lake Worth who works part time."

The Palm Beach Post notes that she is actually Cara Jennings, a former Lake Worth city commissioner and self-described "anarchist cheerleader."

In a 2006 interview, Jennings described her youth as an activist anarchist cheerleader and why she decided to run for office.

"The practical reality," she said in 2006. "Is that in Lake Worth there’s not a large anarchist community, and there’s not even a large progressive community. So in order to make a better impact, I decided to run for office. I don’t think it was the most anarchist thing to do, but it was a responsible thing to do."

"Shame on you Rick Scott," she said Wednesday. "You don’t care about working people. You should be ashamed to show your face around here."

Rick Scott tries to note that Florida has added 1 million jobs under his administration, but she interrupts saying: "A million jobs? Great, who here has a great job?"

CARA JENNINGS: 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.

GOV. RICK SCOTT: We got a million jobs.

CARA JENNINGS: A million jobs? Great, who here has a great job? Or is looking forward to finishing school -You really feel like you have a job coming up. You stripped women to access to public healthcare, shame on you Rick Scott.

We depend on those services. Rich people like you don't know what to do -- When poor people like us need health services you cut them. Shame on you, Rick Scott, you're an embarassment to our state.
