Washington Monthly tells us that Republican governors and mayors are pushing for the Obama administration’s economic stimulus package even as Congressional Republicans are united in opposition. Kinda reminds you of the Japanese governors and mayors lobbying to keep the gasoline tax surcharge, doesn’t it?
