Hutchison attacks Perry for turning down stimulus funds that she voted against.

Back in February, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) voted against the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in part because she said the bill “doesn’t actually stimulate.” Today, however, in an early move in the 2010 Republican primary for Texas governor, Hutchison attacked incumbent Gov. Rick Perry for turning down the very stimulus money she believed would do nothing for the economy:

Perry, of course, originally opposed the stimulus, but has was recently forced to ask the federal government for a $170 million loan to cover unemployment insurance.
