Lately, Rick Scott has been going around saying that Floridians know how to spend their money better than the government does. Well, he's doing his part to prove that's true.
He recently went on a business poaching tour to Philadelphia. While he was there, he spent $40,000 of taxpayer and private funds. Among his expenses were workouts at the Four Seasons. In return for the "investment" he scored the promise of some convenience stores next year.
This past week, he went on a similar trip to California in an effort to get businesses there to move to Florida.
In response, he got a lecture in the form of a newspaper column. They weren't buying what he was selling them.
