The stimulus bill passed the House without a single GOP vote. They'd've gotten no credit had they supported it, so there was no gain to helping. According to the Wall Street Journal's Political Diary, Rep. Mike Pence reportedly said to Pres. Obama at the Congressional confab yesterday "You mentioned that this bill had been negotiated in the House. Let me make it clear that there has been no negotiating in the House, because Democrats didn't include us in the process."

Bully for them. Here's hoping for 41 Fresh Water senators.
