Reports tell us that Florida will be sending almost 60K families a one time payment of $450 per child. This is supposed to help pay for food, school supplies, clothing and other needs. The state says this will help offset the cost of rising inflation. Press sec for Ron DeSantis tweeted a photo of the letters and says it will come with a one time payment. Florida Governor wanted us to know that the checks were real. Press Secretary Christina Pshaw released a statement saying “the federal government causes inflation by deficit spending. Stimulus checks were part of that. By contrast, the budget surplus in Florida is at the state level and it’s already money in existence, we do not print money here. So- no, it doesn’t cause inflation.”

If you get the check you will also receive a letter from Governor Ron DeSantis saying:
Dear Floridian,
As the father of three young children, I know that getting ready for a new school year can be both exciting and stressful. To offset the costs of rising inflation, especially with a new school year approaching, the State of Florida is giving you $450 for each child in your care.

This one-time payment can be used for anything from buying diapers to fueling up at the pump. I also want to make sure you are aware of our state’s “Back-to-School” sales-tax holiday, which will take place from July 25 through August 7, to help you get the supplies you need to prepare for the upcoming school year. Supplies that will be tax-free during this time include clothing, bags, computers, shoes and other school supplies.

Please accept this payment as a form of gratitude and acknowledgment for all that you do to help nurture Florida’s future. God bless you, and God bless the great state of Florida.
Sincerely,
Ron DeSantis
Governor

    This is not my personal favorite although it is very good.  It just seems this list would be incomplete without it.

    I did leave The Cardinal of the Kremlin out of the mix but the other three are often overlooked as some of the best movies of all time!
