“And by ‘won’t take a penny of stimulus money,’ of course, I really mean we’ll take everything we can get. Thanks!”
South Carolina’s Republican governor says his state will accept money from President Barack Obama’s stimulus plan even though he is ideologically opposed to it. Gov. Mark Sanford says being against the plan “doesn’t preclude taking the money.”
I am shocked- shocked– the Republicans would betray their principles so blatantly? Is anyone else shocked? Fer chrissakes, even Sarah Palin wasn’t dumb enough to ignore stimulus money. Maybe it has to do with the fact that Texas is the only Republican state that pays more into Federal taxes then it gets back?
