Boehner Just Says No

From The Politico:

House Republican Leader John A. Boehner and his No. 2, Whip Eric Cantor, told their rank-and-file members Tuesday morning during a closed-door meeting to oppose the bill when it comes to the floor Wednesday, according to an aide familiar with the discussion. Boehner told members that he’s voting against the stimulus, and Cantor told the assembled Republicans that there wasn’t any reason for them to support the measure, according to another person in the room. Cantor and his whip team are going to urge GOP members to oppose it.

Obama doesn’t need Republican support. This pork stimulus bill can easily pass and be signed into law without the Republicans. The reason he wants them so badly to support it is so that when it fails, and it will definitely fail, we can spread the wealth around. Oh, excuse me, spread the blame around.
