    Breaking with congressional Republicans, GOP governors back Obama on stimulus plan -- Courant.com



    This past week the bipartisan National Governors Association called on Congress to quickly pass the plan.

    "States are facing fiscal conditions not seen since the Great Depression — anticipated budget shortfalls are expected in excess of $200 billion," the NGA statement said. "Governors ... support several key elements of the bill critical to states-increased federal support for Medicaid and K-12 and higher education; investment in the nation's infrastructure; and tax provisions to spur investment."

    Not really all that surprising. They want the money from the "stimulus" for their state, that way they can put off being fiscally responsible a little while longer.

    Exactly. They don't oppose it on ideological grounds, or even based upon any evidence. They just want the money, and they are willing to sell out their state itself to get it.

    Election is not based upon approval ratings or objective likeability. It is based upon comparisons to the other guys.
