Venice, Fla. -- Suncoast congressman Vern Buchanan spoke in Venice Saturday morning and took questions from his constituents. Buchanan discussed a wide variety of topics in front of residents.

Buchanan addressed concerns relating to flood insurance, jobs and spending. And for one of the first times, we heard him talk about the problematic homeless situation in this area which he said is an important issue. Buchanan praises the decision to hire Doctor Robert Marbut, who has come up with a number of recommendations to curb homelessness in the area.

    People should search hard and wide to find truth in the things Vern Buchanan addresses. His vision is very narrow and very limited. Vern is a wealthy auto car dealer and has used his wealth to buy his way. Especially into politics.

    He shows his real side when you look at how he has treated his former and current employees. The illegal ones from south of the border especially.

    How a person treats his people and neighbors (such as Habitat for Humanity), says a lot about a persons real desire to help others that need help. In Vern's case he has shown that all he wants to help is other wealthy people like himself.

    To get the real story on Vern, all you have to do is Google him. It becomes very clear after you research Vern in the state, national and local court records. Just look at the lawsuits filed against him by former employees, consumers, his own CFO, and former partners Florida and out of state.
