Simple Math

Here is a rough breakdown on the final votes in the House and Senate on the "spendulous" bill that President Obama will sign into law today. Note that for our purposes "Democrat" includes that tiny fraction of "Independents" who caucus with them:

Votes for the Stimulus Bill:


Democrats 246 Republicans 0


Democrats 58 Republicans 3


Democrats 304 Republicans 3

Does anyone see a pattern? Not to say that the GOP is perfect, far from it. However, these numbers are staggering. Please file this away for 2010 (and beyond).
