Questions, questions

Posted By on Thu, Feb 19, 2009 at 6:08 AM

Brummett joins the questioning Republican chorus on the stimulus bill -- how much, for what? My questions: What's the alternative? And if money reaches even, horrors, school teachers in the form of additional pay, won't that be spent and percolate through the economy?

I just hope that the carping Republican governors mentioned here go so far as to turn down the stimulus money. The Just Say No approach ought to work as well on politics as it does on preventing teen pregnancies.

UPDATE: The hypocrite Republican govenror of South Carolina says he still doesn't approve, but, OK, he'll take the money.

  • UPDATE: Hutchinson moves to cover himself on cut to War Memorial Stadium

    Gov. Asa Hutchinson apparently felt the burn from KARK's exclusive Tuesday night on his plans to cut state support of War Memorial Stadium in half beginning July 1, 2018. He has a so-far secret plan to make the stadium self-sustaining. We bet that doesn't include state support.
