Every Republican member of Congress I have talked to during the stimulus debate, whether conversing with the member directly or going through their press secretaries, has said the same thing: their constituents do not support this bill. (Obviously, that means I haven’t talked to Arlen Specter, Susan Collins or Olympia Snowe.) That’s why “Obama won” and “the last eight years” aren’t cutting it as arguments for why Republicans should vote for the spending package. The principled, the unprincipled, the partisan, and the bipartisan among the House GOP all won their elections too and they believe the people who elected them don’t want to see their money spent in this fashion.
UPDATE: And indeed, no House Republicans voted for the bill. Seven Democrats voted no, down from 11 with the original version.
