EYE ON MIAMI: October 21, 2016. Written by Gimleteye.
Only Republicans can end the psychological warfare practiced by the GOP and its top funders against the interests of voters. Case in point: Marco Rubio and clean water in Florida.
It is an article of faith among Republican voters that government should not pick winners and losers in economic competition. Much of the Republican voter frustration that propelled Donald Trump to the presidential nomination, above party favorites like Marco Rubio, sprang from discontent with undelivered promises of the values party.
How this betrayal happened, and is continuing to happen, is reflected in the way that public policies have been distorted by Republicans to favor special interests. Like Big Sugar. Here, GOP leaders in Florida have recklessly interfered with the rights of millions of Floridians to enjoy clean, safe fresh water -- now polluted because those same leaders pursued policies and laws damaging to the public interest.
