Stimulus Contains Too Much Spending, Boehner Says
January 28, 2009, 7:41 AM
A top-ranking Republican says GOP lawmakers are worried about the level of domestic spending in the $825 billion economic stimulus bill now before the House.
House Republican Leader John Boehner said Republicans are "for more than just cutting taxes." But he also said the bill before lawmakers for a vote Wednesday contains spending that "has nothing to do with creating jobs or preserving jobs."
He did not say how he thought the vote would turn out. But Boehner did say he was gratified President Barack Obama came to the Capitol to talk over differences between Democrats and Republicans.
