More GOP Support of the Stimulus

The Republican position on the economic stimulus package that passed last week is getting increasingly confusing. The Hill's Reid Wilson looked at some Republicans that are now praising the bill after voting against it today and noted that the DCCC is trying to highlight what they say is a Republican double standard.

And now Rep. Pete Hoekstra (R-Mich.), who also voted against the bill, just posted this on his Twitter page:
petehoekstra If you know of someone thinking of buying first home, now may be the time.Stimulus incentive is very generous!Up to 8k!Check it out.

UPDATE: A reader writes in that first term GOP Rep. Leonard Lance, a Republican that voted for the bill, also touted parts of the legislation recently. From mycentraljersey.com:
Under the terms of the stimulus plan signed into law Tuesday by President Barack Obama infrastructure projects that are "shovel-ready" could be the first to be funded with economic recovery money.

That's the hope of Rep. Leonard Lance, R-Clinton Township, who toured the project's construction sites Tuesday morning with Mayor Carey Pilato, members of the Green Brook Flood Control Commission and representatives of the Army Corps of Engineers, which is overseeing the project. "This is a classic example of a "shovel-ready' project," Lance said after the tour.
