Digging In

Governor Mark Sanford and Governor Bobby Jindal are back in the news today. The two Southern Republican Governors are digging in against the stimulus and further explaining their objections to the federal monies being forced upon their states.

McClatchy reports:
South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford is expected Wednesday to become the first governor to formally reject some of the federal stimulus money earmarked by Congress for his state. …

'Our objections to the so-called stimulus bill have been well-chronicled for the way it spends money that we don't have and for the way this printing of money could ultimately devalue the American dollar,' Sanford said on Tuesday[.]
Sanford’s compatriot to the Southwest, Louisiana’s Bobby Jindal, spoke to Fox News this morning, saying:
We are turning down approximately $100 million … of temporary federal money that would require permanent changes in state law and permanent increase in state spending. ...

That money is not free. That's money that our children, our grandchildren, are going to have to pay back. They don’t get to just print that money; we have to pay that money back.
