I can’t wait to see the man go.
In typical fashion, Kit Bond is heading on the road today to take credit for getting $40 million for low-income housing in Missouri, when he not only voted against the bill, but also trashed it as the “trillion dollar” baby. While the bill was being debated, he also tried to claim we were on his side in opposition at a rate of 4 to 1, without evidence. Isn’t there, say, a union local or two in Southwest Missouri who could meet Bond and shame him for his opposition to the stimulus package?
This is on the heels of Blaine Luetkemeyer touting increased Pell grants in his district even after he voted against the bill.
Here’s a newsflash for you, Walter Kronkite. You do not get to take credit for a bill that you opposed.
