All statements involving Bill Nelson

Says it wasn't until he and a Senate colleague were able to "wrangle the actual streaming video" from BP that scientists were able to calculate the oil spill flow.

"Obama-Nelson economic record: Job creation ... at slowest post-recession rate since Great Depression."  

"750 days since Bill Nelson & the Democrats in the Senate passed a budget. How can this be justified?"

"(Bill) Nelson voted for billions in wasteful spending earmarks like the Bridge to Nowhere."

"55 percent of the people who cast a provisional ballot (in Florida) in the last presidential election -- their vote did not count."

"The entire state of Florida led the nation last year with the most prison inmates committing tax fraud."

"The amount of the revenue required by the state (for the construction of high-speed rail) is around 10 percent."

"In Florida, Sen. Bill Nelson ... got a $25 billion to $30 billion carve-out for Medicare Advantage patients in their state."

"The truth is any oil that would be drilled could be sent to any other country in the world, reducing our use of foreign oil not by one single drop."

Oil money from federal leases "can only be used to clean up the mess and damages from drilling."
