Schwarzenegger Blasts GOP For Hypocritical Approach To Stimulus Package
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has accused fellow Republicans of being hypocrites for criticizing last year’s recovery act while willingly accepting stimulus money for their own state.
Speaking on ABC’s This Week, Schwarzenegger stated that the $787 billion stimulus bill was imperative and mocked members of the GOP for not working with the current administration.
"I find it interesting that you have a lot of the Republicans running around and pushing back on the stimulus money and saying this doesn’t create any new jobs," Schwarzenegger said.
"And then they go out and they do the photo ops and they are posing with the big check and they say, ‘Isn’t this great? Look what kind of money I provide here for the state.’…It doesn’t match up," he added.
The California governor also agreed that the GOP was the "Party of No," as many liberals have branded it. He said that Republican opposition to President Obama is driven by the party’s desire to win mid-term elections in November.
