I know a way to settle this. Weatherford vs Dee in a UFC fight.
Have you ever seen a politician fight before? Well, besides Manny Pacquiao?
Bottom line is this: The bill cruised the Senate and Ross swears they had the votes to make it cruise through the House bring it to the people. I believe Ross when he says Weatherford said it would hit the floor for a vote. I also believe Ross has a major problem putting up the money to get this issue on the ballot.... money that he won't get back. This scumbag Weatherford bypassed the democratic process. Now his defense is he wasn't going to put a referendum on the floor that would make tax payers in Miami-Dade pay for upgrades to the stadium. First it was a referendum for them to VOTE THEIR CHOICE. Second he makes it sound like the referendum would have taken money from starving working families.
It was a one cent tax on hotels and tourism. Stay with me here if Jax fans can petition Obama to make Jax hire Tebow, Then why can't we petition for Weatherford to be fired? We are talking about the head of the legislation deciding that the people of Miami Dade didn't deserve the right to cast their vote because he knew better. H e bypassed the democratic system, made a decision that best suited his agenda, denied the people the right to choose, and acted. In other countries he would be known as a DICTATOR. Yet he knows after a while this will go away the press will move on and he can do it again. He needs to be held accountable for what he did and his reasoning, after it blew up in his face, to the American people. He didn't expect Ross to raise so much hell. Lets kick this scum bag while he's back peddling before he slithers away.
