Judd Gregg withdraws
The Hiller Instinct: Judd Gregg withdraws
This battle between Republicans and Democrats isn't just about politics. It's also about principle. So, when Gregg says he's always been a strong fiscal conservative and that he has "irresolvable conflicts" with the president, his implication is clear: like nearly all Republicans, he doesn't support this economic plan. Gregg wouldn't say how he'll vote on it, but I think he did.
The president and the Democrats believe they're finally on the right track, but the Republicans disagree and don't want to be on this stimulus train with them.
We're just the passengers.
I'm Andy Hiller, and that's my instinct.
