Ideologues

Hey, this is America!

A half-dozen Republican governors are considering turning down some money from the federal stimulus package, a move opponents say puts conservative ideology ahead of the needs of constituents struggling with record foreclosures and soaring unemployment.

Though none has outright rejected the money available for education, health care and infrastructure, the governors of Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Alaska, South Carolina and Idaho have all questioned whether the $787 billion bill signed into law this week will even help the economy.

"My concern is there's going to be commitments attached to it that are a mile long," said Texas Gov. Rick Perry. "We need the freedom to pick and choose. And we need the freedom to say 'No thanks.'"

You know, I think they'll take the money.

After a little posturing, Bless Their Hearts. Even Governor Goodhair.

The country is repelete with terrorists that want to become a 3rd world country. Let us spend the stimulus for Al Qaida governed states on free states. When Al Qaida comes begging, let coffers be empty.
