GOP Hypocrisy Update, Part III: 67 Republicans Take Stimulus Money They Voted Against

Those budget hawks in the Republican Party talk tough—the country don't need no stinkin' stimulus money.

It's danged ole socialism and it's ruining America!

But the GOP only talks tough. In fact, Republicans love home town pork as much as everybody else. As the Daily Kos has documented, the number of Republicans who have proudly accepted stimulus funds is now 67—and counting.

The details—with Republican names—are here.

Sooner State Hypocrisy Alert: The list of 67 includes Rep. Mary Fallin, who wants some of those Federal dollars she opposed to help improve buildings for the Oklahoma National Guard.
