GOP Threatens Stimulus Revolt

Apparently not getting the post-partisan memo, Republicans legislators are become more and more adamant in their opposition to President Obama's stimulus package with some complaining they've been shut out of drafting the legislation. Complaints include that there aren't enough tax cuts in the package and that the plan comes with too high a price tag and too much government spending. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi seems willing to play bad cop to Obama's good cop to get her version of the bill through the House largely untouched by the GOP. "Yes, we wrote the bill. Yes, we won the election," she told reporters yesterday.
