Hank Hayes covered the Rogersville/Hawkins County Chamber of Commerce legislative breakfast Saturday morning, where Phil Roe discussed the stimulus bill.
“We got it at 9 o’clock yesterday morning and voted at 2 o’clock yesterday afternoon,” Roe said of the bill. “No one has read this bill. I can promise you not one senator, not one representative in the United States Congress has read that.”
Full report here.
(A.) I think I might love Phil for admitting this. Of course, my loyalty is fickle and crushes short-lived, so I wouldn’t read too much into it. (B.) While I won’t disagree that some form of stimulus was necessary (all the experts say so) there’s still some un-stimulating expenditures wrapped up in this bill. (tres) Will Heath Shuler just become a damn Republican already?
