This is it: As leaders […]

I first read about this over at Bob Cesca’s Awesome Blog! Go! and was pretty stunned.

Republicans demand “scrapping the bill” TWENTY times!

Unrelenting GOPocrisy from Tim Walberg

Unrelenting GOPocrisy from Tim Walberg

As I have talked about here before, I’m keenly watching the Republican contenders for MI-07.

This week he released a statement that said this: One Year after the Stimulus Package: Higher Unemployment in U.S., Taxpayer Dollars Creating Jobs Overseas The […]
