On this morning’s “Meet The Press”, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow called out Republican Congressman Aaron Schock (IL-18) for opposing President Obama’s Recovery Act and then claiming credit for the projects it created in his district.

Schock isn’t the only one. Check out the DCCC’s House GOP Hypocrisy Hall of Fame >>

TRANSCRIPT:

MADDOW: “You, in your district, I just read that you were at a community college touting a $350,000 green technology education program, talking about how great that was going to be for your district. You voted against the bill that created that grant. That’s happening a lot with Republicans sort of taking credit for things that Democratic bills do and then Republicans simultaneously touting their votes against them and trashing them. That, I think, is a problem that needs to be resolved within your caucus. Because you seem like a very nice person but that is a very hypocritical stance to take.”
