Are Republicans in jeopardy?
February 11, 2009 - Jim Smith
At lunch today a friend and I began discussing the Republican holdouts for President Barack Obama's stimulus plan.
While neither of us pretend to understand creating hundreds of billions of dollars out of thin air and designating it to plans that supposedly could save the economy, we still find it interesting that politics plays as much a roll in the stimulus plan as the actual plan itself.
It seems some hardcore Republicans are saying on thing about the president's plan and then taking the direct opposition position when they vote against it.
Ah, yes, politics as usual in the capital.
The economy is a mess! Maybe the petty politics should be left for another day and another issue. Maybe both sides of the aisle should concentrate on getting Americans back to work, having Americans living in theirown homes, getting Americans paying their bills and letting Americans have a secure retirement fund.
If the Republicans don't get onboard and help with the economic recovery, are they doomed to be the minority party?
