What’s it like to wake up from a Tea Party binge?

From the annals of  “we have seen the future,”  Mother Jones schools us on what’s happened in Florida under two years of Tea Party control:

In just one year, Scott and his conservative allies slashed state spending by $4 billion even as they cut corporate taxes. They’ve rejected billions in federal funds in one of the states hardest hit by the recession. They’ve axed everything from health care and public transportation initiatives to mosquito control and water supply programs.

The results are not pretty.
