I just want to emphasize a point. On the Friday Brain Dump, I mentioned that 8 Republican Representatives were expected to vote for the stimulus package. The bill just passed the house – again without any GOP support. That means that of 219 Republicans in Congress (House and Senate) only three support the stimulus plan. That’s less than 1.4%.

A gallup poll released earlier this week showed that of real Republicans across the country, 28% support the stimulus package. So real Republicans support the bill more than Republican congressmen by a factor of 20

Does anyone deny at this point that the GOP is simply playing games with our jobs?
