The Daily Quote

"[Taking Recovery Act funds] was the right thing to do. Our economy was going off into the abyss and if we didn't have those monies, we would have had 87,000 people out of work today in the Sunshine State. Twenty thousand of those are educators, and how many people does that translate into in terms of the children they teach?...It was the right thing to do. We needed the money. That's why what every Republican governor in the country took it. It was a common sense approach to take it.”

 

 - Governor Charlie Crist (R-FL), 2/22/2010
