    Stimulating hypocrisy: Scores of Recovery Act opponents sought money out of public view | iWatch News


    Scores of Republicans and conservative Democrats who voted against the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act subsequently wrote letters requesting funds for projects in a massive, behind-the-scenes letter-writing and phone call campaign, documents obtained by the Center show.

    Those asking for money include Tea Party favorites like freshman Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown and Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., former presidential candidates Ron Paul and John McCain and Republican congressional leaders like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana.

    The "stim" didn't work - dumb fuck. How many trillion dollars are we in the hole for now ? Remember that whole debt ceiling thing ? You call all of this working?

    Grow a brain.

    Why are you starting all these new threads without proving the crap you've lied about in other threads that you've run away from with your tail between your legs?

    Why can't you EVER prove anything that you lie about?

    Is your main point hypocrisy, or that the stimulus still didn't work?? Which one will people be more concerned about when entering the voting booth?? Carry on with your distractions.

    Exactly what part of the stimulous worked?

    We were told we needed to pass the stimulous to avoid unemployment going up to 8%. We've surpassed that consistantly for the last year and a half.

    We were told we needed it to get out of a recession. We are still in one.

    We were told we needed it to get our financial house in order. we are in further disorder than ever before.

    So what exactly did you think the stimulous was supposed to do that has succeeded?

    Try this line of logic:

    I vote against tax increases, they pass. i still end up paying the extra taxes even though i was against it.

    I vote against the stimulus, it passes. Now that the money is allocated I try to get as much as possible for my constituents, even though I was against passing it in the first place.

    So the logic goes " I oppose X, but if it passes I will either follow it, or use its provisions for the best interests of my consitutuents"

    See?

    If the stimulous worked you wouldnt be whining about how "Republicans" have kept this nation in a recession in your other threads.

    So are you going to admit the stimulous didn't work, or are you going to admit you lied?
