Republicans Don't Care About Policy

Rachel Maddow has a good point here.

Republicans in the House and Senate voted unanimously against supporting the stimulus package that economists now agree has had a major positive impact on jobs and the economy. Then they have travelled around the country, with tedious frequency, touting the benefits of the stimulus funds in their own districts. Why?

Isn't it obvious? If they really thought those funds would be bad for their constituents, they wouldn't insist on taking credit for them.

Democrats have a majority, and it's time we started using it, because Republicans have no interest in doing the right thing.
