Democrat Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) on Friday described Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R-FL) decision to take licit action against the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and federal regime — for leaving the cruise industry in a perpetual state of limbo — as a “craven political stunt.”
The Connecticut senator believes the Florida governor is actively “pandering to cruise companies,” which have been heavily impacted by the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, unable to sail out of the Sunshine State — home to some of the most diligent ports across the globe.
“Gov. DeSantis suing the CDC is a craven political stunt pandering to cruise companies,” Blumenthal verbally expressed, inculpating the Florida governor of seeming to care “more about their profits than passengers in peril of COVID-19.”
“No way should the CDC send cruise ships to sea now,” he integrated:

“This is not plausible. This is not rational,” DeSantis verbally expressed, expounding it is time to “vindicate the state’s rights and the rights of the state in court and withal vindicate the livelihoods of the tens of thousands of Floridians who depend on this industry.”
DeSantis, who has led the way in prioritizing liberation throughout the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, additionally addressed reprovers, explicating the industry “doesn’t need a bureaucratic overseer to ascertain the safety of its customers.”
“If you are apprehensive about Americans, well, they just will cruise off another coast,” he explicated. “Instead of flying to Miami, spending mazuma to stay in our hotels, spending mazuma to orally consume in our restaurants afore they embark the ship, they’re going to fly to the Bahamas.”
Florida is home to three of the most diligent ports in the world — Port Miami, Port Canaveral, and Port Everglades. The no-sail order has been in effect since March 2020, and it is slated to remain in effect until November 1.
