Linda Theodore of Lincoln calls Congressman (Tom McClintock) a “hypocrite” for opposing the failed stimulus bill while fighting for local projects (McClintock acts like a hypocrite,” Reader Input, Aug. 22). McClintock has been very clear that the stimulus would not help the economy and he was right. But he has also noted that the $800 billion stimulus bill cost every American $2,500 – taking $1.7 billion out of every congressional district – and he is right to fight to get some of that funding back. If he didn’t, you can be sure that partisans like Theodore would be criticizing him for not fighting hard enough for local projects. Oh wait, they do that anyway! That’s the real hypocrisy.
