Giving the bailout money to companies that AREN'T failing? I don't agree with the bailouts in the first place, but I don't think there's a chance it isn't going to happen. So, why would you give taxpayer money to companies that have already shown they are unable to stay in business? This is the exact sort of behavior that led to the problem in the first place, only on a much larger scale. Is this a stupid idea?
There you go again, making sense.

Well then if your Congresscritter voted against the stimulus package, let him/her tell his/her constituents that, in the name of consistency, (s)he will refuse any aid for his/her district.

And, BTW, the comment about "A congressman isn't the one that actually handles the money of a district" is simply a straw man.
