Florida “worst state” for spending stimulus
Washington bluntly labeled Florida as the “worst performing state” because they’ve been the slowest to spend highway stimulus money. See: http://transportation.house.gov/News/PRArticle.aspx?NewsID=984
In Washington’s Bizzaro world, cautious spending of taxpayer money is bad. Very bad.
Rocky notes that Washington also appears unaware of the unusual highway conditions in Southern Florida:
Rocky hears that highway crews are currently stuck in traffic on the Florida Turnpike. Local residents report that the highway crews are flashing high-beams and honking at a group of slow-moving white Taurus sedans moving 20MPH in the passing lane. The Taurus drivers seem unaware that they should move over to the right lane, so the asphalt spreaders can pass.
