House Republicans Grew Spines

Maybe they learned a lesson from the last election. Maybe they pay more attention to Rush Limbaugh than the President would like, but all 177 House Republicans voted against Obama's Stimulus bill.

That took courage and conviction. They were, in fact, joined by eleven Democrats, making opposition to the bill bi-partisan. Think we'll hear one reporter refer to the "bipartisan opposition?" Me neither.

The Wall Street Journal has a great explanation of what this pork-fest contains.

On to the Senate!
