Rep. Joe Wilson (SC) wrote a guest blog post for RedState today. Here is an excerpt:
Vice President Joe Biden recently told the American people that the Obama Administration misread the economy when putting together their nearly $1 trillion spending package. Clearly, this administration made many serious mistakes when putting together their so-called “stimulus” package but chief among them was a serious misreading of history.
Both President John F. Kennedy and President Ronald Reagan showed that broad tax relief for American families and small businesses was the best way to stimulate the economy and support job creation. After all, small businesses create the majority of jobs in this country, so it would seem commonsense to put our support behind them. In fact, Republican stimulus proposals included substantial relief for small businesses as well as working families, those who have lost their jobs, and retirees. We constructed a strategy with a proven track record and one that empowers the American people not government bureaucrats.
