Republicans critique jobs stimulus program — monkey studies and allThose stingy Republicans have issued another lame attack on what they call "wasteful spending" in President Barack Obama's $863 billion job stimulus program.
In their so-called "report," U.S. Sens. John McCain and Tom Coburn listed 100 instances of what they claim to be government "waste" and "abuse."
These include vital federal projects, like that $89,298 sidewalk in Boynton, Okla. Sure, it doesn't run past a home or business, and yes, it does end in a ditch. But it's extremely smooth.
And that nearly $800,000 program so a Georgia Tech University assistant music professor can hang out with world-renowned musicians and "jam" with them? Can't you dig it?
