Republicans seem to think that Americans won't notice their hypocrisy about the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. While they rail about the spending and the myth that the legislation has been a failure, when they are in their home district, and in writing, they admit that the stimulus bill is creating jobs and they request money for their districts.
You can't be for and against something at the same time and not expect to pay a price for your hypocrisy. The teabag crowd hates big government and big spending and more than 100 House Republicans have attacked the stimulus bill while making positive statements about the stimulus to the voters at home. So will the Republican hypocrites pay a price for their hypocrisy in November?
The stimulus bill has worked by all reasonable measures. Can we and must we do more? Yes.
