Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Brian Bilbray square off over the stimulus bill on Hardball, Feb. 13, 2009. Bilbray does his best to run away from the Republican party and their past spending, and George Bush.

Wasserman Schultz sounds like she's got Bilbray's next opponent's campaign ad written for them.

Schultz: What Brian did by voting no today was he voted against giving 385,000 jobs in his own state. 8,000 jobs in his own district. Aid to his state to help....

Matthews: Did you look this up?

Schultz: Yes I sure did. (crosstalk) 8,000 jobs in his own district. Avoiding layoffs of teachers, firefighters and policemen. The bottom line is that this bill is designed to create jobs, turn the economy around, avoid layoffs, move us towards energy independence and the Republicans have just said "No". He can say all he wants, that he doesn't want this bill to fail. This vote for them was all about 2010. They are hoping that this doesn't work so that they can blame the continued poor economy on the Democrats and that is the bottom line.
