Congressman Roe doesn’t want to spend taxpayer dollars but he’s happy to dole it out. This is exactly the kind of sham leadership that has Tennesseans so frustrated with the Republican Congress.
Roe voted against the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 — also known as the stimulus package.
That didn’t seem to bother him in Greenville, where he handed out a $1.3 million check paid for by stimulus funds.
This isn’t the first time Roe has been caught in the hypocritical position of taking credit for job-creating initiatives that he opposed.
