    When the leftist/democrats/socialists and communists are trying to take over the country then NO may not be sufficient!

    Even the ideas they had been pushing for they turn against and seemingly will continue to do so. They simply decided to be obstructionists. This is not good for you, me or anyone ... except the rich folk they are trying to help.

    Read the article before answering illogically again.

    Good advice. You should take it rather than post headlines.

    From the article:

    Boehner turned to the $815 billion stimulus bill that House Democrats had just unveiled. Boehner complained that it would spend too much, too late, on too many Democratic goodies. He urged his members to trash it on cable, on YouTube, on the House floor: “It’s another run-of-the-mill, undisciplined, cumbersome, wasteful Washington spending bill … I hope everyone here will join me in voting no!”

    [..]

    One Obama aide said he received a similar warning from a Republican Senate staffer he was seeing at the time. He remembered asking her one morning in bed, How do we get a stimulus deal? She replied, Baby, there’s no deal!

    “This is how we get whole,” she said with a laugh. “We’re going to do to you what you did to us in 2006.”

    So you have shown that the Republicans were united in opposing the biggest spending bill in U.S. history. And they were right. The fact is that the Dems had control of both the House and the Senate and the White House. They didn't need any cooperation from the Republicans. Rather than look inward and ask, "Why didn't we repeal the Bush tax cuts? Why didn't we shut down Gitmo? Why didn't we pass more environmental laws? Well, why not?!! Easier to complain about Republican non-cooperation (which didn't obstruct anything as Dems controlled the entire government) than admit their own failures.

    What else ya got?

    Did my homework and read the whole article...

    So the Republicans opposed Obama's non-stimulus stimulus spending on the basis that is was too much money - too late - all wasted...

    And they were right.

    So what?

    NO was the correct answer.

    Crabtownboy thinks anything Obama and the democrats is divinely inspired! He may think Obama can walk on water but he is keeping quite. What about it CTB?
