Blaise Ingoglia: ‘Like voucher is a bad word’

Fresh from the Republican National Convention, Republican Party of Florida Vice Chairman Blaise Ingoglia is taking the party’s enthusiasm on the road.

In a speech resembling what one might have heard at the Tampa convention, Ingoglia told the Republican Club of Central Palm Beach County Thursday, to start having “adult conversations” if anyone wants to avoid the pain and nausea of loss the day after the election.

No less than the Republican Party itself is on the line with this election, he said.

“This is our second chance,” Ingoglia said. “We screwed it up the first time.”

He suggested telling people that, as Republican leaders, “we lost our way, but if we get back into office, we will start making the right choices.”

The founder of Government Gone Wild, a government accountability project that has exploded onto the political scene with viral videos about fiscal responsibility, Ingoglia said he wants to see Republican politicians recommit themselves and apologize to the public for not keeping past promises of conservative spending. His lofty goal for Florida: for the state to be an example of leadership to others.

Ingoglia predicted that people will say, “When our backs were against the wall, the people of Florida stood up and led.”

The first move toward leadership, he said, should be firing Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

Janeen Capizola , president of the Palms West Republican Club, was inspired by his vision.

“Blaise has a powerful ability to break down the financial crisis our country faces into numbers that everyone can understand,” Capizola said. “And while it’s frightening and sickening to hear, we need to fully grasp the reality that if you don’t make serious changes immediately, the USA will be bankrupt.”

In a more personal statement she later said, “ever since hearing him speak Thursday night I keep looking at my children and seeing the debt they have inherited.”

Ingoglia was particularly fired up about a national dialogue over Medicare that has demonized vouchers.

“Like voucher is a bad word,” he said. Democrats love vouchers when it suits them, he added, listing food stamps, the GI Bill and Section 8 housing as examples. “But they don’t love the voucher system coming out from a Republican presidential ticket that is going to try to attempt to fix the biggest problem this nation has.”
