Republicans Kill “Country First”

Republicans are blaming Nancy Pelosi for the failure of the Emergency Economic Stimulus Bill yesterday.  Apparently twelve members of Congress decided to act like four year olds and refuse to accept personal responsibility for their failures and hurt the country instead.  Again.

I suppose it isn’t bad enough that their failed economic policies killed our economy but now, as they strangely refuse to accept accountability for their own failures, they’re blaming Pelosi.

I always thought personal responsibility was a key hallmark of being a Republican?

Here’s what the Speaker said:

It is a number that is staggering, but tells us only the costs of the Bush Administration’s failed economic policies-policies built on budgetary recklessness, on an anything goes mentality, with no regulation, no supervision, and no discipline in the system.

So what about those words was so offensive they cost American investors $1.2 trillion in the stock market in one day?  It’s true.  Republican budgets, refusal to regulate markets and industries and unbridled deficit spending have put the nation on the brink of disaster.  So they voted against the plan.

So much for “Country First.”
