Crist Optimistic About Stimulus Package

Now that Obama has officially signed the bill providing for the nation’s stimulus package, Florida Governor Charlie Crist is optimistic about the benefits Florida will reap as a result. Roughly $12 billion is slated to come to Florida to save and create thousands of jobs, support public programs such as Medicaid, increase unemployment benefits, provide tax cuts and credits to working families, and boost health and educational programs. Crist was all but banking on the stimulus coming to pass, and based his 2009 budget around the infusion of funds. While experts still fear that it won’t solve Florida’s problems, Crist is hopeful that it will make for dramatic improvements. How much of a positive impact do you think the stimulus package will be to health care and other areas in Florida?
