Since when did these Republicans get so hawkish about the debt and spending people’s money? I sat watching CNBC this morning as I was getting ready, and watched Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-TX) go on and on about how we have to be careful about spending, that our spending may be wasteful, that she didn’t like the PORK that was in the stimulus bill, etc.
Reminds me of something… I go and search Thomas.LOC.gov and find the bill that was put forth to allow us to go 8.97 TRILLION dollars into debt. If you want, the link is here. When parusing the list of sponsors, lo and behold, under the YEA column is none other than Kay Bailey Hutchinson.
Hypocrisy, thy name is the honorable woman from Texas.
