Republicans Used to Support Obama's Housing Plan

CRAZY isn't it..............

Republicans Used to Support Obama's Housing Plan - The Atlantic Wire - Politics - The Atlantic

QuoteQuote:
The mortgage aid plan President Obama is offering to draw a contrast with Mitt Romney is based in part on an idea by Romney's senior economic adviser. It fits a pattern: Obama gets frustrated by Republican refusal to pass anything he proposes so he dares them to oppose an idea he stole from them. So far the G.O.P. seems unbothered by the strategem. ..........

This isn't the first time Obama has leaned on Romney's advisers -- the guys who created Romney's health care overhaul went to the White House in 2009 to help Obama create his. And the president's housing proposal, which would allow people who owe more than their homes are worth to lower their payments with cheaper mortgages, has some support among congressional Republicans. Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson called it "a no-brainer," for example. His jobs plan featured temporary payroll tax cuts, which were supported by top Republican senators several times between 2001 and 2010. Many Republicans back his proposal to defer a 3 percent tax on government contractors, though the Senate wasn't able to overcome a Republican filibuster last week. And, of course, his health care overhaul stole ideas from the Heritage Foundation's plan in the 1990s, and, of course, Romney's in 2006.

Then again, maybe they'd filibuster Romney as well.
