The Senator stopped into Monticello at the Three Sisters restaurant Tuesday evening to discuss some key points of the stimulus bill signed into law. Nelson says Florida will receive about 12 billion dollars of the stimulus, with about 4.4 billion of it going to health care and 2.2 billion to education. Nelson mentioned other aspects of the bill such as money for low income families, state projects, and other job recovery projects.

Nelson also spoke to the local leaders about how some of the financial crisis began--blaming the collapse of lending institutions and rapid growth. Senator Nelson will be meeting with communities across the Panhandle for the remainder of the week.

    All I can say is He's sure got a nerve! After we called, faxed, emailed how we felt...and he took our noses and rubbed them in kaka....and he says I know people are calling 10:1 to vote no for the stimulus --- I'm going against your wishes, and voting for it. Just what kind of representative is he of his electorate?
