In an interview with Don Walton of the LJS, Democrat State Senator Tom White said that he would have voted for President Obama's 900 billion dollar "stimulus" bill.
And then he says...
- He would work to "control spending";
- He would work to prevent "prevent new deficit spending";
- In his present job he'll "oppose any effort to increase taxes".
In FAVOR of blowing $900 billion on ham.
But pledges to "control spending".
Mr. Walton does not indicate whether or not he spit coffee all over White after he burst out laughing.
Tom White also says that the people of the 2nd District should elect him because he is a Democrat and the Dems are in the majority in DC, so... you know...Democrats.
Remarkably, not an argument you heard from any Dems when the GOP held the House.
Nor an argument you heard from White in his last campaign for the Republican dominated Unicameral.
And by the way, it would be nice if the Dems could put up a candidate -- ANY candidate -- that the people of Lincoln could vote for. Poor Don Walton can only kidnap Tom White and make him drink so many cups of coffee in Haymarket so many times...
