    According to the 'Center for Public Integrity', four Republicans that voted against and bashed the stimulus bill, lined up to ask for stimulus money once the bill passed.
    How do John Ensign, Mitch McConnell, Scott Brown, and Michele Bachmann explain this? Seeing the stimulus as bad policy, why do they want any part of it?

    This is a glaring example of how Congressional members of both parties continue to contribute to the crashing and eventual burning of this country.

    Might it be that their constituents are paying for the stimulus bill through taxes, and are deserving of the benefits. That wasn't so hard to understand, no?

    That pork is some highly addictive stuff. Congress critters just can't keep their hands off of it.

    That is my view also. If your constituents are gonna be shafted into paying for it, it is their representative's responsibility to ensure they get a few bangs for their bucks. This is possibly above the intellectual capacity of the drooling hordes to grasp.

    True, that's why the stimulus bill should never have been passed in the first place. It sure didn't do what it was packaged to do, and at nearly a trillion dollars....it pisses me off.

    The point you make is a disingenuous one. Their prime responsibility is to politically act in accordance with their political principles.

    If their constituents are expected to pay for it, they are entitled to benefit from it. As a stick with which to beat your political 'enemies', it's a fail.

    All constituents in all states HAVE to equally pay for it, as its not an expectational choice. If a main purpose of the Fed. Govt.'s existence anymore is to provide never-ending multi-billions in 'stimulus' to states inequitably (based on who wields Congressional and Executive power) and to select corporations, then those who are entitled to benefit from it, obviously benefit inequitably, state to state.
    If Fed. stimulus bills become the norm, which they very well could, then I'll be for dissolving the Fed., as the possibility of principled politicians on that level becomes totally extinct.
    When that happens, then we might as well replace the Fed. with 7 or 8 regional confederacies.
