We'll take it.
"Governor Sanford says that he does not want to take the money, the federal stimulus package money. And I want to say to him: 'I'll take it.' I'm more than happy to take his money or any other governor in this country that doesn't want to take this money, I take it, because we in California need it," - Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-California) on "This Week."
Of course those who say they won't take the funding are privately hoping they are overruled by their state legislators so they don't get blamed for the failure to revive their economy. They could always take the credit for doing something aside from accepting the stimulus package if and when their state economies are revived later on down the road.
