Rubio’s Refund Act, Newt gets Glittered, and Huntsman in Orlando

A lot to cover, let’s get popping.

Rubio’s Refund Act:Remember when Florida Governor Rick Scott turned down 2.4 billion dollars of federal money for high speed rail? That money went to other states like, Illinois, New York, and St. Louis. We’ve got a deficit like the worlds never seen and because we chose not to take money that was awarded to us, other states got it. Instead of trying to fix the problem that effects our future.

Florida Senator Marco Rubio is trying to fix that.

Rubio introduced the Returned Exclusively For Unpaid National Debt (REFUND) Act. This allows us to send money we don’t decide to use to go towards paying off the national debt. Imagine what that 2.4 billion which was ours, could have saved on a federal level.

If legislation like this would have been brought forth sooner, we might have been able to avoid national cuts to programs that affect vulnerable citizens (special needs, elderly) and services that we really need.

We need to support this.

Newt Gingrich gets glittered: Newt has had a rough week. First he catches all sorts of flak for assaulting Paul Ryan’s medicare plan and now this.

An activist threw enough glitter on Gingrich to make a piece of construction paper jealous.

Was it necessary? No. Should we care? Not really. It’s another political stunts, we just have to make sure it stays peaceful.

So ladies, when your man comes home and you find glitter on his clothes, you might think he’s partying behind your back.

Relax, he probably just got back from a Gingrich rally.

Jon Huntsman to set up Presidential HQ in Orlando: Who? You might be asking. Former Utah Governor and Ambassador to China, Republican Jon Huntsman will be setting up his Prez exploratory HQ, right here in Orlando.

Strategically, it makes a lot of sense. The middle of the biggest battleground state in the country? Why not?

He’s not well known, and he hasn’t been polling well but, you never know and if he gets hot, chances are you’ll know someone that will be working for him.

It’s been a busy day. I might take tomorrow off, we’ll see.
