ABSTRACT
In this article, the author discusses the Republicans' refusal to support the economic recovery bill signed U.S. President Barack Obama. He notes that the Republicans refuses to support the bill because it is too big and it has too few tax cuts for upper income Americans. He explains that adding more tax cuts for the wealthy will only result to fewer jobs. He contends that the act of the Republicans only demonstrate that they know nothing about the economic situation of the U.S.
