‘Read the stimulus’ advocate Dick Armey slammed for not bothering to read the stimulus.This is the best republicans can do? They bring in an expert who hasn't read the bill!
Yesterday, the House Oversight and Government Reform committee held a hearing on the implementation of the Recovery Act, also known as the stimulus. Republican members invited former GOP Majority Leader Dick Armey, who now leads the corporate front group FreedomWorks, to testify as their expert witness.
[...]VAN HOLLEN: Let me ask you think. You keep saying ‘if there were,’ did you read the Economic Recovery bill?Ironically, as part of an effort to obstruct and derail the bill, Armey launched an online petition called “ReadTheStimulus.org.”
ARMEY: No I didn’t. I had no reason to read it, I wasn’t voting on it.
It just goes to show that the best thing republicans have to offer is willful ignorance.
