But Republican opposition could complicate or delay Obama's plans. Boehner, McConnell, and others say they are concerned that the president-elect's proposal could add as much as $1 trillion to the already massive federal deficit and lacks enough detail to get it passed by Jan. 20.
Where was their concern for the deficit when we started blowing $100 billion plus a year on the Iraq war? The Republicans say, they just want to look things over.
McConnell said Republicans want to do the same thing to the stimulus bill, "page by page, line by line - eliminating those programs we don't need, and insisting that those we do operate in a sensible cost-effective way."
Translation we are going to be obstructionist bastards and to hell with the rest of the country. The Republicans only have one goal and one strategy to accomplish it, block anything proposed by ay Democrat and obstruct and stall in the Senate. It’s going to be a long two years until the next election.
