Watch Scott whack the budget live

by Dara Kam | May 26th, 2011

Gov. Rick Scott‘s got the $69.7 billion budget to sign today, but the state’s spending plan will likely be considerably leaner after the first-year governor is done.

Scott is expected to make history by red-lining in excess of Gov. Charlie Crist‘s record-setting $459.2 million in vetoes in 2007, also the governor’s first year as state CEO.

Scott’s turned the budget signing ceremony into a public spectacle in The Villages, a favorite stumping ground for the conservative Republican, where he’ll be surrounded by tea party supporters. Previous governors have held more subdued signing events inside the Capitol.

Those who can’t make it to Central Florida can watch Scott wield his veto pen via the internet.

Log onto shortly before 1 p.m. to join in.

    “A” doesn’t know the meaning of the meaning of the word “fascist”, and moreover probably failed intro to financial accounting in college. Let me help you out a bit here. You make X, and you spend Y. if Y is greater than X you have a problem. Scott is doing what any responsible head of household or businessperson would do, and that’s decreasing the Y. Stop drinking the Kool-Aid and open your eyes for goodness sakes. And the best part is Scott is doing it despite all of the quasi socialist commentators ad PBP and SS hammering him at every opportunity to promote their utopian societal dreams (which are impossible in a free market system). Anyway. That’s enough for today. Have a great Memorial Day weekend everyone and don’t forget to give thanks to those who have fought and died for all of the freedoms we hold so dear.
