If you thought the CBS flagship “60 Minutes” and their dumpster fire of a hit job on Ron DeSantis elevated the Florida governor’s national profile, you haven’t seen anything yet.
On Thursday, DeSantis sued the Biden administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the CDC’s role in locking down the cruise industry, one of his state’s most important sources for jobs and tourism in an unprecedented overreach by an agency that is not mentioned anywhere in the Constitution.
The CDC, which has been put into God mode by the COVID crisis, has hedged on allowing cruises out of Florida to resume sailing, leading Americans to fly to other destinations to board and depriving the U.S. economy of tourist dollars which is especially damaging to South Florida.
DeSantis announced the lawsuit as well as took questions during a press conference at the Port Of Miami; “On behalf of the tens of thousands of Floridians whose livelihoods depend on the viability of an open cruise industry, today Florida’s fighting back,” he announced in a press conference. “We don’t believe the federal government has the right to mothball a major industry for over a year, based on very little evidence and very little data.” Said the governor.
