There was a bit of a commotion out of Roger Kahn yesterday when he complained that his area didn't receive enough road stimulus $$, which brought about a response from, believe it or not... Mark Brewer! Go Mark!
Michigan's Democratic Party entered the skirmish over who gets what projects, bashing Kahn for withholding his vote the day before when the Senate committee approved sending the stimulus bill to the full membership for the following day's session.
Democratic leader Mark Brewer said $24 million is scheduled to go to Kahn's district.
"Kahn's lack of support is putting thousands of local jobs at risk," Brewer said.
Now that's what I'm talking about. No one wants to hear Republican whining about the stimulus when they wouldn't even support it in the first place, and it's very nice to see the MDP step up and help us out on that front. Keep it up!
"Where are we going to find the money to pay for it?" The tax cut would have to be paid with spending cuts somewhere and the House Democrats have not proposed where those cuts would come from, he said.
I had to reach for the Dramamine after that one.
