Do Republicans dislike the stimulus bill because?

it limits the pay day and bonus pay of their friends in big corporate America. remember W. didn't have any such requirements and the repubs. loved that one.

Update:

Joe finkle- you are wrong chris dodd submitted the admendment to the banking committe and it passed , check CNN

Update 2:

Wow, I must have hit a nerve the republicans have the claws out, alot of name calling going on. I guess thats what you do when your party is a disgrace

    the GOP don't care about stimulus bill ,it will pass either way.

    The GOP is sending a clear message to the Democratic party and to President Obama that they will not have any support.

    Remember it was not the democratic that embarrassed the republicans it was Obama.

    Obama was and is very vocal of the lack of leadership the GOP stood for in the last 8 years of the BUSH doctine (lol)

    IF your Representative did not support the stimulus . VOTE THEM OUT NEXT ELECTION

    the republicans do not like the stimulus because it is not stimulus and the corporate america will get their pay day. The bill is not stimulus because half of the bill is going to repair government buildings also their is money for ATV trails and STD awareness (here is free awareness keep your legs closed) There is so much money wasted in that bill and i am willing to bet that it will not stimulate the economy and will not put more money in the americans pocket actually it will take it away. Also Obama said on Saturdays weekly address that it is W's fault for the 2 trillion defecit and my question to him is and what is his administration going to do to get rid of the deficit besides make it worse. People do not understand teh democrats want socialism and communism something that america is not. It wish the democrats would think before they attacked the repub because they are not anybetter because actually they are worse the democrats are corrupt (Burris, Clinton, Blago, Kennedy, and many many more corrupt democrats)

    Because its one of the biggest pork barrel spending/ear mark bills in history as well as the biggest so-called Stimulus Bill.

    That's not in the stimulus bill. It's part of the treasury department's new policies with regard to the TARP program, which is a separate part of the overall stimulus package.

    Republicans mostly dislike it because they didn't really get much input to setting it up and what little input they did have was mostly ignored - a lot like what the Democrats endured from 1992-2006 . Ok, I was off by 2 years. 1994-2006.

    As they say, paybacks are he!!, even though I was off by 2 years.

    It has more to do with increasing the size of government and repaying the people and corporations that gave money to the BHO campaign then it has to do with actually helping the small businesses, individuals and the over all economy grow. It's mostly pork, which is why the bill received little republican support in the House and Senate.

    allow me to correct your misinformation. the bill that you are giving credit to W for was written and passed by largely dems who controlled cong. ask them where the money went, what is was spent on and why they didn't include any accountability in that bill? when you get an answer let me know, i'm curious.

    sponge for the record, dems controlled cong. from 1954-1994 and 2006 thru at least 2010. according to the way i was taught math when i went to school that will be 44 out of the last 56 yrs. maybe the new math figures out differently.

    No they do not like it because they are looking out for people like you that do not have the sense to realize that you have to pay for all of this.

    And it doesn't give extra fluff to big companies!

  • This "stimulus" bill is just a special interest spending package; it will benefit the fat cats and special interests far more than it will the average American. Still can't see it? That's your problem.
