GOP senators draft stimulus alternative – CNN.com
Posted February 3, 2009on:
A small group of Republican Senators have drafted a stimulus package that concentrates more on cutting taxes and saving homes from foreclosure. The details are not as yet available and no doubt as the entire Republican Caucus looks it over there will be changes. It appears to me to be far more appropriate and to the point of helping people than the mixed bag of political pay-offs to special interest groups the Democrats want the American public to swallow.
Of course all these special interest groups with their hands out are now pressuring the Senators to keep their little piece of the pie in the bill. This includes the Governors of states who are holding out their hands for a grab at federal money. Can no one understand that the federal government has no money! BB
