Once again, Richard Burr takes credit for something he tried to stop:
“Hypocritical Senator Richard Burr voted against the stimulus package and called it 'wasteful' and said it would provide 'little to no stimulus' but that hasn't stopped him from showing up at stimulus funded events in North Carolina,” said Deirdre Murphy, spokeswoman for the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
“If Senator Burr had had his way, this company would never have received funding to expand and add jobs,” Murphy said.
The Burr campaign did not respond.
Of course they didn't. What could they say? "Um, Senator Burr fully supported this, but he wanted to pay for the Stimulus with the, er,...Stimulus funds, but the Democrats blocked him! So there!" ;)
