Republicans want say in economic stimulus plan
By LAURIE KELLMAN, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON – Congressional Republicans on Monday said they would work with Democrats to craft a plan to stimulate the economy, but only if GOP ideas are considered for a bill that could cost as much as $1 trillion.
“We need the right mix of tax relief and other measures to grow the economy,”of Kentucky said in a statement.
The Democrats’ plan to pass a yet-unwritten stimulus bill before‘s inauguration next month gives Congress too little time to consider what’s in it, he said.
“Taxpayers are in no mood to have a single dollar wasted, but it’s not yet been explained how their tax dollars will be protected…in a rush to spend their money,” McConnell added.
