State Senator Slams Stimulus While Spending It

State Senator Mike Haridopolos (R) has released another YouTube video slamming President Obama’s Economic Stimulus Package, while failing to admit the state would be destitute without it.  From the Palm Beach Post:

In his seventh video released in the past two weeks, Sen. Mike Haridopolos takes aim at the federal stimulus package, calling it “something we simply can’t afford.” But Haridopolos and his fellow Republican leaders in the state legislature are planning to use nearly every stimulus dollar available to plug $4 billion of a $6 billion budget hole this year. Both chambers are hoping to approve their competing spending plans this week.

The video can be viewed here.
