Florida’s Republican state and federal legislators – Dr. Jekyl and Mr. Hyde

I guess it’s all a matter of perspective for Florida’s Republican legislators.  While Florida’s state Republican legislators, including Governor Charlie Crist, are busy salivating over the prospect of receiving billions of federal stimulus dollars (approximately $30 billion of them), Florida’s federal Republican legislators are busy just saying no to the bailout in Washington, DC.

The US House is expected to pass the stimulus package today, while the US Senate isn’t expected to receive the package until next week.  And numerous changes could occur in the bill before it reaches the President’s desk for signature.
