SPTimes editorial: Big spending Vern Buchanan



From Wednesday's St. Petersburg Times editorial: "...In just three months, he (U.S. Rep. Vern Buchanan, R-Sarasota) spent three times as much government money on self-promotional propaganda as the average Florida public schoolteacher makes in a year. And he did it as a member of the new House majority that refuses to raise the debt ceiling without significant cuts in federal spending..." Full editorial here.
