Didn't work the first time, but the second time I guess will be a charm

From Reuters:

The Obama administration, facing criticism its economic stimulus plans are failing to halt layoffs, on Tuesday said hiring prompted by the spending would accelerate next year…..Republican lawmakers have heavily criticized the Obama plan, pushed through Congress in February, for doing little to stop the loss of 3 million jobs since February or prevent unemployment reaching 10.2 percent….At a Joint Economic Committee hearing last week, Rep. Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican, declared the stimulus a failure and asked U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to step down…Bernstein said there was "no relationship between the timing" of last week's criticism and an effort to highlight some of the stimulus act's more successful programs.

Amazing how Brady suddenly has a backbone and is stepping up his game now that he has a challenger in the Republican primary in his District for the first time since he was first elected in 96. Too little too late Brady, you ignored the District and voted for TARP - TWICE as well as in committee. You're hardly in a position to be casting stones and your District has lost faith in your ability to be an effective leader in Congress.

I'm voting for his challenger, Tyler Russell, and if you haven't done so already you should check him out: www.TylerRussellForCongress.com.
