Interesting look-back by the Naples Daily News about the Obama-buck-fed-tax-hiking budget, supported in 2009 by the new running mate of Gov. Rick Scott, who uses the spending plan to criticize Charlie Crist:
“This is a tough year, I strongly urge you to support this budget,” said Lt. Gov. Carlos Lopez-Cantera, who at the time was House majority leader, one of that chamber’s top positions, according to video from the final day of the 2009 legislative session.
The Miami Republican, who is now Scott’s running-mate, spoke minutes before the House passed the budget on the final day of the 2009 session. In his comments, he pushed back against Democratic opponents claims that the budget relied on increased property taxes.
“That is just not true,” he said.
