Ron DeSantis is a fighter.
His willingness to take on the Left has made him a rockstar among Republicans.
And now Democrats are fuming after Ron DeSantis dropped this massive truthbomb on the Left.
Florida’s economy is thriving thanks to Ron DeSantis’ pro-freedom policies and successful leadership over the past two years.
While economies in Democrat-run states were ruined as a result of the forced lockdowns and closures, Florida prospered while remaining open for business, and is now a national leader in economic growth.
Joe Biden’s disastrous Presidency has America on the brink of recession, which threatens all of the progress Florida has made over the past two years.
But Ron DeSantis’ leadership has Florida in a better position than other states to weather the storm from Biden’s economic disaster.
“I think it’s very likely that Biden is going to plunge this country into a recession,” DeSantis remarked.
He said, “there’s a lot of concern about the overall economy.”
“Florida’s been doing well, and we’re happy about that, but when you have the inflation headwinds, when you have the Fed raising interest rates, when you have some of the other things happening in the markets, there is a possibility of a downturn,” he continued.
“And unfortunately, that downturn will have been precipitated by a lot of really bad policies coming out of Washington, D.C.,” DeSantis added.
Should the country go into a recession, DeSantis noted that Florida would be prepared.
“Prudent statesmanship is to be prepared in case something like that does happen,” he noted.
“For the month of April, it’s our current estimate that the state of Florida brought in about $760 million above estimate,” he said.
“We consistently have been over-performing. That means that the fiscal surplus for fiscal 21-22 is going to be by far the biggest surplus in the state’s history,” he explained.
“That’s what you call being a good steward of people’s money,” DeSantis pointed out.
“We are happy with our fiscal situation,” he stated.
“We have the reserves ready. We would not miss a beat in terms of meeting our priorities for education, infrastructure, water resources, all these things that are part of our mission to make Florida a great state to live,” he concluded.
Florida now has a rainy day fund built up it can use to soften the blow from Biden’s recession.
DeSantis also added that he plans to review the state budget to cut waste from it as well.
Under his leadership, Florida is preparing for a future recession in order to not have to raise taxes or cut services to the people.
