This story made my day because I’ve had to sit through a week’s worth of Democrat demagoguery over five Republican Governors who decided that taking the full amount of stimulus might not be in the best interest of the people in their state, and were going through the bill to look for hidden items, see what strings were attached, etc.
You know, that pesky ideology of theirs – the one that tells them borrowing money from our children and increasing the debt by a few trillion dollars are bad things – was getting in the way of just doing what Dear Leader said.
These Governors were scoundrels! They’re doing it purely for political reasons! One douchebag even accused implied that they were racist that it might have been racially motivated that certain voters may have been disproportionately affected.
I wonder if they think the same thing aboot Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen, a DEMOCRAT who might not want the full amount either…
Tennessee could reject a portion of the $787 billion economic stimulus package out of concerns that it would force the state to raise taxes on businesses in the future. At the National Governors Association meetings in Washington, D.C., Gov. Phil Bredesen said this week that he might turn down relief for unemployed workers worth an estimated $143 million because of conditions placed on the money by Congress.
“We are evaluating this piece of money, whether it makes sense for us to take it,” Bredesen said in an interview Monday with the Chattanooga Times Free Press. “We’re in the position of going back to our legislature this year for changes in our tax structure just to keep our fund whole, and taking it to a new level may be too much of a lift for the legislature this spring.”
So to Chuck Schumer and Jim Clyburn, stick that in your pipe and smoke it.
UPDATE: Or, maybe not. As per @tjking, “I heard Tennessee is on board…Schumer dropped a Scat Nuke on his head.”
