This guy says it best...
Republicans who fought the bill said it provides too much money at a time when the government is running astronomical deficits. "Obviously we need to run the government, but do you suppose the government could be a little bit like families and be just a little bit prudent in how much it spends?" said Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz.
Before you say it, I know Bush spent a lot. However, back in kindergarten, I learned that two wrongs don't make a right.
