This week I emailed my U.S. Senate and House members, urging them to support President Obama and Majority Leader Reid in a balanced solution to our long-term federal debt. I’m confident that Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) will try to do that. Alas, I’m equally confident that Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Rep. Richard Nugent (R-FL) will not. Such is politics in a reddish-purple county, in a bluish-purple state.
