Woo Hoo! GOP Shut out!
Bad news: Stimulus bill passes House
Good news: No GOP members vote for it! A new bipartisan era has not come to Washington!
WASHINGTON - In a swift victory for President Barack Obama, the Democratic-controlled House approved a historically huge $819 billion stimulus bill Wednesday night with spending increases and tax cuts at the heart of the young administration's plan to revive a badly ailing economy.
MSNBC doesn't push the shut-out angle, but Mister Brutally Honest does. Awesome on stilts!
UPDATE: Quote of the Day nomination:
Barack Obama promised to end the "politics of division," unite Washington's factions and overcome partisanship. And what do you know -- so far he has: The President's stimulus plan generated bipartisan House opposition, with every Republican and 11 Democrats voting against it on Wednesday. It passed 244-188. -- WSJ Ed Page
