From Think Progress:
Despite repeatedly voting against the American Recovery Act, Boehner thanked federal officials for stepping in and ordering the state “to use all of its construction dollars for shovel-ready projects that will create much-needed jobs.”
The Iowa blog Bleeding Heartland reported: Rep. Steve King’s (R-IA) office “issued an upbeat statement about $570,000 included in the economic stimulus bill that will go toward widening U.S. Highway 20 in a rural area of northwest Iowa. Of course, the statement did not mention that King voted against the stimulus. Nor did the brief news item in the Sioux City Journal.” King repeatedly voted against the stimulus.This news itself is nothing new but on the anniversary of the Stimulus its important to bring up again. Rachel Maddow was already covering this back in 2011.
