    I remember reading an article in a local paper that we (Texas) tried to refuse funds from the fed, but were told that we would lose other programs the feds subsidize if we didn't take the money. Something akin to refusing highway funds if states didn't lower speed limits / raise drinking ages, I suppose. I can't remember the exact details of what was threatened, but we ended up taking the money.

    Your posts prove that you'll excuse hypocrisy as long as it's coming from a Republican.
    Ok....here it is:

    Unlike in the current and prior budget year, none of the stimulus money will directly help the state balance its $69.1 billion budget. That enables Scott to make good on his campaign promise to not use “one-time money” to balance the budget.

    Don't try to argue dude.

    As evidenced here... http://www.debatepolitics.com/southe...ularity.html#1

    ...Rick Scott hatred mostly boils down to "HE'S A REPUBLICAN."

    "Politician" might as well be a synonym for "hypocrite". Not sure why it's so important to point out the hypocrisy of the other side, as if it detracts from the fact that it exists on all sides, at all levels. Further, since most (if not all) politicians are hypocrites, what's the point in saying so everytime a politician is mentioned that you don't support or agree with? Would it not be better serving to reference their particularly policies and how they affect the electorate as opposed to lamenting their character? And with that, if we were to assume that hypocrisy eliminates one from the political field, why are we not seeing a decrease in hypocrisy? In asking that question, I would fully expect your answer to be something regarding republicans being hypocrites themselves, and other partisan nonsense, so consider it a rhetorical question.

    By that logic, if a Republican president passes a tax cut that a Democratic governor disagrees with, that governor ought to just say, "SCREW YOU, I'M GOING TO COLLECT THAT REVENUE AND SEND IT TO YOU ANYWAY BECAUSE I'M NO HYPOCRITE."
