My Republican Senator just voted for more farm subsidies

"Senators from key farm states Thursday stopped a plan by reformers to cut the top federal subsidy per farm to 250,000 dollars annually from 360,000 dollars. A proposal to block supports for people earning more than 750,000 dollars also failed."

Apparently Senator Martinez thinks its ok to spend money that isn't his. He thinks Floridians should have to pay taxes so that the Farm states can receive more federal subsidies which are absolutely not required.

And he calls himself a member of the fiscally conservative party? Ha!
