GOPer Govs want bucks without conditions

It's not that GOPer governors really don't want the federal money from the recovery bill. It's just that they don't want any strings attached on how to spend it. Guess it might make it harder to funnel 'teh pork' to their favored cronies.
Republican governors Mark Sanford of South Carolina, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Rick Perry of Texas expressed reservations this week about accepting their states' shares of the stimulus package because they are worried that the federal government will impose conditions on how it can be spent. Opposing the plan "doesn't preclude taking the money," said Mr. Sanford.
Really. Because banks never ask for conditions when they give you money. And charitable endowments never come with strings. Oh wait....
