Once again Pam Bondi, Florida’s Teabagging Attorney General, has decided to waste the taxpayer’s money on another anti-decency crusade. Consistent with her opposition to Gay marriage, government in the Sunshine, the Affordable Care Act, and medical marijuana, the twice-divorced Attorney General has chosen to appeal the August 13, 2014 ruling of 11th Circuit Court Judge Jorge Cueto declaring Florida’s workers’ compensation system in violation of both the Florida and U.S. constitutions as no longer providing a “reasonable alternative” to the tort system for workers seeking recompense for job related injuries. See this blog: Florida’s Workers’ Compensation System Unconstitutional, So Says 11th Circuit Court Judge Jorge Cueto.
Florida’s workers’ compensation system is an abomination to injured workers, a windfall to employers and their insurance companies, which explains why Pam Bondi is pulling out all stops to keep it in place. Nothing less could be expected from Governor Rick Scott’s chief legal officer.
Here’s a taste of the horrors of Florida’s workers’ compensation system:
- Will Jeb Bush/Right-Wing Extremism be the Straw that Breaks the Back of Florida’s Workers’ Compensation System?
- Florida’s Workers’ Compensation Statute Perpetrates Taxpayer Ripoff
- Florida Workers’ Compensation a Long Way From Its Roots
- Florida’s Workers’ Compensation System is Worse Than Ever … If You’re an Injured Worker
A better solution than Bondi’s appeal is for Florida’s Legislature to create a new workers’ compensation system that is fair and just to both business interests and workers.
