Absolutely correct Sam....& this bill had plenty of Republican changes & tax cuts added to appease Republicans.(too many in fact which will hurt the recovery efforts)
Funny but Republican Governors like the bill so it is bi-partisan & the Congressional Repubs, who refused to vote for it are now, like Stockingful points out.....happy to run home to claim credit for money going to their states...that they voted to reject!
Truly Un-American & points to how they don't really care about their country......just their "Country Clubs." (many of which wouldn't even allow their leader Michael Stephen Steele (new chairman of the RNC) to play golf at!
I know this forum leans pretty heavily Republican but I suggest you start to work from the inside & change the trajectory of the CURRENT Republican party to something that is more in line with your traditions (No "Nation Building" that we can't afford, keeping jobs here in America, etc) & reflects what the average American voter wants, not what the corporate CEO's want.
(but hey.......It's your party & we Democrats will be more than happy to keep taking the Congressional seats that you guys are handing us!)
