(CNN) – Former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is lending a financial hand to a group of House Republicans who have become targets of a new Democratic campaign over their opposition to the $787 billion stimulus bill.
In recorded telephone messages, text messages, and e-mails set to be sent out this week, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee plans to highlight the opposition of 12 House Republicans to stimulus package.
“What Republicans wanted was a bill to strengthen the economy,” Romney said in a statement announcing the $1000 donations by his Free and Strong America PAC. “What the Democrats passed was a bill to stimulate government. We are committed to helping these courageous Republicans defend their position and fend off political attacks.”
The “Undaunted Dozen,” as Romney calls them, “[stood] up for fiscal responsibility and [said] no to spending abuse.”
Although the former GOP presidential hopeful referred to the dozen members targeted by the DCCC, Rep. Adam Putnam of Florida was not sent a donation because he has announced that he is not seeking re-election in 2010, according to the PAC’s statement.
God Bless You MItt Romey!!!!
This spending has got to stop!!! Our stock investments are going to disappear if it doesn't stop!!!
Repubicans should stop their obstructionist politics and find a better way to make their mark. Ronnie is a loser, so do many of those in congress we are waiting to vote against come next electon.
ANYONE ATTEMPTING TO KEEP US IN THE BUSH PATH

CONTINUED RAPE OF OUR NATION SHOULD BE VOTED
OUT OF OFFICE, REPUBLICAN OR DEMOCRAT. ANYONE
STANDING IN THE WAY OF THE CHANGE WE HAVE VOTED

He donated the $ from his PAC? Is that HIS money or funds donated to him by other contributors?
ONCE AGAIN its everyone else's fault.. SARAH!!! COULD IT BE that ITS YOU thats not qualified to even run your family let alone the USA? Sure blame it on the media.. oh by the way, 90% of the media is OWNED BY CONSERVATIVE REPBULICANS..is there not a lesson in this SARAH? Could it be YOU thats the problem??? DUH!
Buying political favors, Romney?
Just another of the many disgusting acts by the republicans.
Your are showing your true stripes Mitt... We will remember this in 4 years!
Hey Romney, what the hell can a $1,000 buy buddy? Why don't you DONATE the money from the sale of your two homes for sale.......
Yep, we thought so. Another Republican who's all TALK and NO WALK....
God Bless You Mitt Romey!!! This spending spree Obama is on needs to STOP. The dems complained about Gov. Palin's wardrobe spending – well this is MUCH MUCH more than her clothes!!!!
COMPLAIN!!!! I do not want my stock investments to disappear!!
If you are so wealthy why don't you help those who need it, not these stupid idiots.
These Congressmen are American heroes. They are standing up to the irresponsible democrats/socialists who want to destroy the U.S. econonmy so they can implement their marxist regime.
THANKS MITT!!! If you had been nominated last year, you would be President right now. I'm looking forward to 2010 when the GOP retakes congress and politically cripples the Obama administration for its final 2 years.
These guys have become "targets" of the democrats? What a joke that is...by the time 2010 rolls around, most Americans will have figured out that they were hoodwinked by Kommandant Obama and his politburo.
JUST LISTEN TO THE SCUMBAG.
WE CAN COUNT. WE CAN COUNT.
THE NAZUCANS LEFT US WITH THE BIGGEST
GOVERNMENT & THE BIGGEST DEFICIT IN THE HISTORY
OF THIS NATION & IT WASN'T SPENT ON US. THE SCUMBAGS
NEVER STOP LYING & STEALING UNTIL THEY ARE IN JAIL.
Mitt 2012 !!!
Glad to hear that Romney is meddling in local races.
I'll be sure to fund the opponents of these men in their races.
No more of the rich ... like Romney .... thinking they can buy elections and force a particular result.
Brilliant move. I always admired his sense of sound business acumen. Who better than to lend his name and money but a former Governor, tried , tested and delivered in all facets of his life. A good opportunity for an election campaign platform...lol.
“Undaunted Dozen,” as Romney calls them, “[stood] up for fiscal responsibility and [said] no to spending abuse.”
This is a joke right!?!?!? Look who is talking????? Delusional republicans!! THIS WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN DOING THE PAST 8 YRS!! unbeliavable!!
THE REPUBLICANS HAVE LEFT US WITH THE LARGES DEFICIT
IN THE HISTORY OF OUR NATION & THEY HAVE THE NERVE TO
TALK ABOUT LARGE GOVERNMENT. THEY HAVE DESTROYED
OUR ECONOMY & PROBABLY THE ECONOMIES OF THE ENTIRE
WORLD. WHOEVER BELIEVES THEIR VILE LIES DESERVES THEM.
THE ANTI-AMERICAN SCUMBAGS NEED TO GIVE IT A REST.
To everyone suffering now:
Remember, these are the clowns that have not only caused your suffering. They not only are solely responsible for the WORLD falling apart, but now they are the ones trying their hardest to obstruct any effort to rectify the situation.
Why is anyone even listening to them anymore?
Mitt Romney is a moron. This guy made a fortune on Wall Street due to lack of regulation and he is one of the reasons America is broke today. Typical Rebublican greed.
THE REPUBLICANS HAVE SPENT $10-15 BILLION ON IRAQ
EVERY MONTH, SOLD US OUT TO THE BIGGEST BIDDER
FOR THE LAST 8 YEARS & NOW ARE TALKING ABOUT BIG
IT IS OUR TAX $$$$$$S & WE ARE SPENDING ON US.
YOU CAN ALL PACK UP & GO TO HELL !!!!
Not agreeing with the structure and components of the bill is one thing, but not sitting down to work out a compromise and ostracizing fellow Republicans who did sit down to negotiate is unforgiveable. That is obstructionist behavior at it's finest.
Dems better get their heads out of the pork barrel and smell what they're selling.
Dems are gonna be in for a big surprise come 2010.
