No GOP Votes for the Stimulus Package

What amazes me is that the Republican argument against this bill is being given any weight whatsoever. Obama came to them, met with them, made changes to the bill to accommodate them, and in the end, they voted unanimously against it...even as Americans lose jobs on a massive scale. Their reason? Too much spending, too little in tax cuts.

Did no one send the GOP the memo that eight years of Bush policies and tax cuts have produced exactly nothing for the economy?
