GOP knows one tune

The Spokesman-Review

Triumphant they look when not even one Republican legislator supported the stimulus program put forward by President Obama. The same did not flinch approving the bailout suggested by the last administration.

Republican mantra is tax cuts as a solution for every problem that exists. They tout without analyzing the facts that Bush’s tax cuts provided the expansion. The facts are the domestic growth was not as good; the misery index, defined as inflation plus unemployment, started increasing and reached new highs.

The bill approved puts money where it is needed: improving domestic infrastructure, not Iraq infrastructure. As the Wall Street Journal points out, it will be the same Republicans who will be eager to take the money to their districts.
