Maybe House Republicans are Starting to Get It

The stimulus passed the House, but...

From Bloomberg:
Obama had traveled to Capitol Hill earlier this week to personally lobby for Republican support for the stimulus bill, an effort that included a private session with the party’s House members. He failed to win any converts. In yesterday’s vote, all of the 244 “yes” votes came from Democrats. Voting “no” were 177 Republicans and 11 Democrats.
Not a single Republican voted for the stimulus. Good job guys!
