    Dems?  How can that be?  There's like twice as many GOP as Dems.

    The Republican Senate President has already rejected the funds.

    There are definitely enough in the Senate to override a veto.

    What do you mean exactly?

      in this wholly partisan state.  
      The Senate President is running for US Senate in 2012 so he is purely motivated by teabagger politics.

        name is Mike Haridopolis.  Remember it. Revile it.  

        He allowed the 26 repub and Dem senators to send the letter to LaHood but the next day came out in support of Scott's decision.  Shining his teabagger cred he is.

        He's got ethics issues but Floridians don't seem to care about that.  See Scott, Rick.
