No I not getting my news from fox. I have been working for and around the
legislature for 30 years and I have seen the very, very very good times, I
have seen the good times, I have seen the fair times, I have seen the not so
good times, I have seen the bad times, I have seen the very bad times and if
I am lucky enough to be around I will see the very, very, very bad times.
But hoping it want get to that for me to see. I know politics inside and out
I have did it most all my life. Believe me when I say things are going to
get worst for everyone especially people with disabilities. Especially
disabilities not consider severe. Also state workers are going to be hurting
also. The stimulus money is gone now we have to face reality. We The State
of Florida is about 3 billion short from last year. Now where are they going
to get 3 billion dollars? The one that will suffer is the ones that does not
have the powerful lobbyist working for them. Oh guess what we don't have
this. This being said I hope a miracle happens and we come up with about 20
billion extra for the budget but don't hold your breath. Just my thoughts.

  


Thanks,

Oh gloom & doom

There is all kinds of reports on NPR about the recession or what ever you
call the thing is over and things will start getting better. That is except
for the people going back to work. This is always the last to recover after
a downturn.
You must be getting your news reports from Fox News.

I was referring to the stimulus money that is going around.

Just my thoughts.
