Walt Disney would be 'rolling over in his grave,' over company's 'wokeness,' Florida park goer says

CELEBRATION, Fla. – Floridians provided mixed responses to the newly signed state legislation that opponents dubbed "Don’t Say Gay."

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed the Parental Rights in Education bill into law Monday, which prohibits classroom discussion or instruction about sexual oriention and gender identity. The Walt Disney Co. issued a statement opposing the legislation.

"We’ve been going to Disney for a long time, and we are tired of the extreme changes that they seem to think are pleasing everyone," Marsha from Winter Garden, Florida, told Fox News. "When our annual passes expired in February, we did not renew them because of our displeasure with the way Disney has gone overall, not just on the particular issue, but on all their wokeness." 

House Passes Bill to Cap Insulin Prices, Which is Sure to Help Big Pharma with Higher Premiums
Rebecca Downs / Townhall Tipsheet
On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives voted 232-193 to pass H.R. 6833 – Affordable Insulin Now Act, which would cap the price of insulin at $35. While the bill passed with bipartisan support and may seem like a compassionate idea, in reality, it's a favor to Big Pharma, as it will lead to higher premiums, when Americans are already suffering due to record-high inflation. 

As Adriel Bettelheim pointed out for Axios on Thursday, ahead of the vote, it "wouldn't address the core problem of rising prices for insulin. It would instead shift more of the cost onto health insurers and employers and result in higher premiums, according to experts."

Then there's the cost. Bettleheim also wrote that "it could wind up costing the government billions in lost revenue and swelling the deficit." The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) had only just released its score on Wednesday night, estimating that the bill would increase costs by about $11 billion. Read more, see tweets, and video here.
