If they stood against this bill on principles of opposing government "wasteful spending" then they should refuse the money to back up their "principles." They won't. They'll take the money and still continue to bash Obama's further economic policies, which next will be helping the housing market and that is the area where Americans need the most help. It is the area where the slide started according to some economists.
We'll see what Republicans do with the housing recovery bill but I bet they pull another "principled stand" and then when they lose they will still gladly accept the money for home owners back home. They are trying to have it both ways--oppose the plans but then accept the benefits when it passes. Breath taking isn't it?
