Ron DeSantis said over the weekend while on the campaign trail in Iowa that he contends toll roads in New York are a grift and simply enrich the Democrat “machine.” He stated that he contends, since the roads are not well maintained, that the money is going to “special interests” and is being laundered for the Democrat party.

  1. @Jon: agree.
    They cant squander our money any further without a functioning House of Rep’s.
    Well at least its more difficult for them. Add to that the fact that most of the Swamp Creatures are some lazy mofo’s and yeah we got it pretty good at this time without a speaker. BTW HAMAS is still slow-walking out hostages. Those demons let another 2 go free today. Honestly keep up the No Speaker thing for as long as possable. YEAH.

  2. David, Pelosi would win. That what you want? I like not having a speaker. Or a house or a functioning congress. What have the done for me?

  3. Not surprising- more bad news- I’ll do update when return from Wisc/ sign up to our Tallahassee Sewage FB page to follow updates – Terry

  4. For Speaker of the House, Hand everyone in the House a Ballot with all the Names of those wanting to be Speaker, put Jim Jordan’s name on that list as well. have them Vote and turn in the Ballot, count the Ballots in front of everyone, including the Media. The person with the MOST Votes is the Speaker. One and Done. STOP PLAYING GAMES AND GET BACK TO WORK.

  5. Looks like we’re going to keep America’s Governor for the next two years – fine by me. Great policies.
    Maybe he can use the next 4 years to work on his personality and come out of the gate in 2026 in the lead? (Casey – feel free to “loan” some of your personality to him, you’ve got plenty.)
