Michael Bennet won’t support Obama’s new stimulus bill

Appointed Obama Democrat Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Washington, DC) says he won’t vote for the $50 billion to $350 billion in new spending on infrastructure that President Obama is proposing in an effort to show that he’s finally getting serious about fixing the economy that he’s helped depress since taking office in 2009.

The National Republican Senatorial Committee responded to the report in The HIll.

“It’s about time that Senator Bennet acknowledged that his party’s reckless economic policies are hurting Coloradans, but his timing 55 days from the election is questionable at best. Voters deserve to know: Why didn’t Bennet bother to read the first costly stimulus debacle before passing it into law, and why didn’t he show this same ‘independence’ when he eagerly rubberstamped President Obama’s massive health care bill? Contrary to his rhetoric, Senator Bennet voted against using unused stimulus funds to offset government spending and he voted to raise our nation’s debt ceiling and max out the government’s credit card twice. As Michael Bennet frantically tries to distance himself from the out-of-control spending policies that he’s championed in Washington for the past year and a half, Coloradans know that their appointed Senator has been a reliable rubberstamp for the Obama White House when it mattered the most.”
