Pete Sessions on Why He Voted Against Stimulus Bill, Then Asked for Stimulus Funds
When asked what the what, Sessions told the center via a written statement:
"The Democrats' stimulus bill is an abject failure that has cost taxpayers $1 trillion while over 3 million additional Americans lost their jobs. I voted against this borrow-and-spend policy last year, and I would again today if given the chance. ... What I have not done is allow my strong, principled objection to the bill to prevent me from asking federal agencies for their full consideration of critical infrastructure and competitive grant projects for North Texas when asked to do so by my constituents."
