Senator Chuck Schumer is pushing back against governors who want to refuse specific portions of the federal stimulus funds. On this morning's Morning Joe, he said the package "was never intended by congress to be an à la carte menu." Additionally, in a letter he sent today to Peter Orzsag, President Obama's budget director, he contends that "no Governor should have the authority to arbitrarily adopt a select subset of the overall package." Yeah! You'll take your freaking money, support your struggling economy, and you'll like it! Of course, if you really don't want it, New York would be more than willing to take it off your hands.
