Weston Congresswoman Lands Promotion; Will Help Us Get More Stuff

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the Weston Democrat (not to be confused with the Westin Diplomat), has been named the vice chair of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government, which is a long way of saying she's in a better position to get us more stuff. In particular, if that stuff falls under the purview of the Department of Treasury, Federal Trade Commission, Federal Drug Control Programs, or the Council of Economic Advisors, so much the better. The subcommittee hashes out the budget for those, among many other departments.

So start scribbling your wishlist, South Florida. Personally, I would like a Bridge to Somewhere. Until I save up for my gigayacht, it would be nice to drive to the Bahamas.
