What do we make of this House vote tally on the final bill, then?
The U.S. House passed President Barack Obama’s $787 billion economic stimulus plan designed to help repair the economy through tax cuts for businesses and families and a half-trillion dollars in federal spending.
The chamber voted 246 to 183 for the measure with no Republicans in favor.
How did Cao vote?
ADDED: Sure enough - Cao voted against the stimulus, contrary to his statements just yesterday: New Orleans Rep. Anh "Joseph" Cao was the only Republican member who had signaled a willingness to support the bill, but he apparently reversed course.
Personally, I'm fine with that - I think the stimulus is unwise and irresponsible on many levels. But I don't know that the vote is a sound political move for someone in his position. Perhaps it's a subtle admission that Cao believes he simply cannot win reelection outside of his one miraculous moment given the numbers in his district.
