Call him the Anti-Innovation, Anti-Technology Speaker.
Nancy Pelosi unveils a plan for putting government squarely behind innovation and technology by providing broadband "no more than a keystroke or a mouse click away from the jobs and opportunity broadband both creates and supports," and gets slammed by Hastert.
Funny, when George W. Bush announced a more expensive plan in April 2004, Denny Hastert was mum. The following week, he OK'd Bush's $50 Billion request for military expenditures in Iraq.
Honestly now. Isn't that tired old "tax and spend" saw getting just a little worn out?
Denny Hastert has taxed and spent the middle class of this country into a future of ruin, piling up a national debt that will be well beyond $10 trillion by the time he and George W. Bush are out of office.
