An observation: Time is short for stimulus opponents. To defeat the stimulus package, at least two senators who voted for cloture the first time around MUST be convinced to change their minds. Only a highly focused message will do. Here’s the message that : Save Welfare Reform: Kill the Stiumulus. As is pointed out by Kathrine Bradley and Robert Rector at the Heritage Foundation, the stimulus package guts the 1996 welfare reform which stands as both the most successful and the most popular federal government policy reform of the past, oh, 40 years or more. And Rector should know: For all intents and purposes, he was the author of that 1996 reform.
Stiumulus opponents should ask a short series of questions to Arlen Specter and Olympia Snowe and anybody who was around in 1996. 1) Did you vote for welfare reform in 1996? 2) Do you think it worked? 3) Do you think we should kill something that worked? 4) If so, why?
Hundreds of thousands of citizens might be well advised to flood senatorial offices with these questions. They are questions that could be game changers.
