Time for recall elections

Shocking news. Surprisingly, unemployed residents get angry with their wingnut governors for rejecting stimulus money to increase their benefits.
The Republican governors of Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina and Texas, along with Alaska and Idaho, have raised protests, saying that expansion could eventually require them to raise taxes.
This, of course, is not true. There is nothing that prevents the states from sunseting the benefits once the federal money runs out. Who would have expected that unemployed people have more time to fact check and figure this out?

The recidivists also know that an amendment slipped in by Rep.Clyburn makes it easy enough for the legislatures in their states to take the money without their consent. Perry is having such fun running against Kay Ba'al-e by calling her Senator Bailout, he's sure the dumbest in TX, his base, will never find out the facts.

Texas politicians do seem to be extra smarmy. One can only hope 'teh base' wises up someday.
