You might be surprised to learn that it’s congressional Dems who are causing trouble for President Obama’s stimulus plan, while Republicans are onboard. So says none other than forked-tongued Sen. Mitch McConnell:

Elana Schor has more on McConnell’s little gambit.

Meanwhile, Politico reports, contrary to what McConnell suggests, that the leadership in the House is determined to kill the bill:

House Republican Leader John A. Boehner and his No. 2, Whip Eric Cantor, told their rank-and-file members Tuesday morning during a closed-door meeting to oppose the bill when it comes to the floor Wednesday, according to an aide familiar with the discussion.

As long as Mitch McConnell’s lips are moving, there’s a scam afoot.
