Democrats stinging Scott for ‘shell game’ on tuition

by John Kennedy | June 12th, 2013

Florida Democrats are taking a swipe at Republican Rick Scott over the governor’s opposition to college and university tuition increases — coming after two years of tuition hikes and higher education budget cuts on his watch.

With a little bit of PhotoShop, Democrats are mocking Scott as attempting to play a shell game with voters. For his part, Scott is looking to become the first Florida governor in two decades to claim he stopped rising tuition. But a 1.7 percent automatic cost-of-living, tuition increase set to go into effect stands in his way.

Next week, the State University System’s Board of Governors is set to approve budgets for the state’s 12 public universities.

Whether the board, whose membership includes a majority of Scott appointees for the first time, insists that schools’ offset the increase by reducing current tuition, will be one of the critical subtexts of the meeting.
