Yeah, after San Diego's Republican Congressional delegation (Bilbray, Hunter, and Issa) all voted against the stimulus package, our right-wing city daily ran this headline, "County's Share of Stimulus No Bounty". With unprecedented financial strain on the city, you'd think they'd appreciate a quarter of a billion dollar freebie shot in the arm. That amounts to a 7.5% bonus. Multiply that by my salary and I get a very happy number that I'd by no means turn my nose up at. After doing everything they could to drag their feet on the bill and shoving in hundreds of billions in tax cuts that our President didn't want (a President, by the way, with the largest popular mandate seen in this country in a quarter century), they immediately switch gears and complain that the bill didn't give us enough money. Well, fellas, think how much money you could have brought to San Diego if you three had been willing to break ranks and vote for the motherfucker. Not that the Dems needed the House votes, but still, they probably would have gotten a lot just to add a few names to the Yea side in a spirit of bipartisanship. Gotta love those Republicans!
