GOP Hypocrisy on the Stimulus?
11:45 AM, Feb 17, 2010 • By JOHN MCCORMACK
The DNC is churning out what seems to be a press release per minute alleging that Republicans are hypocrites for taking stimulus funds for their districts after voting against the stimulus. As Greg Mankiw writes, this is an illogical attack: does that mean Democrats should give back their Bush tax cuts?
Rep. Aaron Schock made the same point after Rachel Maddow accused him of hypocrisy on Meet the Press:
Charlie Crist has echoed the DNC-Maddow line in attacking Marco Rubio for saying he would have accepted stimulus money, but as Rubio says, "It's one thing to say you'll accept the funds from the federal government. It's another to actively advocate those policies, which I think are disastrous for America."
