No big surprises locally on the Senate vote on the stimulus package. Or as Idaho Sen. Jim Risch calls it in his press release the “so-called stimulus package.”
Which probably tips people to the fact that Risch and fellow Idaho Republican Mike Crapo voted no.
Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell, D-Wash., voted yes.
Want to read more from any or all, here are links to their official pronouncements. (Hint: they really are talking about the same bill, even though it may not seem so at first glance.)
