Congressman Adam Putnam, a career politician, voted to oppose the federal stimulus bill on more than one occasion last year. I can only presume he voted against it because his political bosses inside the beltway told him to do so.
But Politico and the St. Pete Times have reported that he's now saying Florida needs the cash to help with jobs and to balance the state budget. So now he is asking the feds for a waiver to send us the very same dollars he opposed.
This is exactly the kind of hypocrisy Floridians are tired of.
If you’re going to be against the stimulus plan in principle, then you need to live up to your word and not flip-flop from one month to another. I would have told you the truth and I wouldn’t engage in such stunning hypocrisy.
If you are ready to join a team that opposes political hypocrisy and send a message to a career politician that you’ve had enough, help us spread the word.
P.S. - In case you missed it, Wikipedia, the worldwide online encyclopedia, literally had Adam Putnam listed under the word “hypocrisy”.
