    Let no one say all we do is kvetch.  Positive steps forward will be recognized as such.

    Washington, DC- Friday, Congressman Walberg issued the following statement after voting against H.R. 2055, the Conference Report to fund the federal government for the rest of the fiscal year.

    "It's positive that Congress reduced discretionary spending for the second year in a row, the first time since World War II, but with the magnitude of our fiscal challenges, this appropriations bill did not go far enough in reducing federal government spending," commented Congressman Walberg following the vote.

    Thank you for your vote Representative Walberg.  As you must now realize allowing the debt to increase will only make your job and the jobs of all American citizens harder in the years to come.  Please continue to hold the line, and demonstrate the difference between the fiscally sane conservative Republican route, and the socially progressive fiscally insane Democrat rout of our constitutional government.

    And while you are at it pull along a few more.

    Reps Amash, Huizenga and McCotter joined Walberg in opposition to this funding resolution which passed 296-121 on the 16th.

    This reduction in discretionary spending is a very, very good trend.

    Rep. Hansen Clarke voted correctly and my Rep. Benishek went with the big spending spineless establishment pale pastel.  WTF?!?!  Doctor Dan is turning out to be a real disappointment.

    H R 2005





    Hey Benishek, put your dunce cap on and go sit in the corner of Rep. Walsh's Office 'cause ya might learn something to stave off a Primary challenge.  OABTW, take the other TEA movement fraud West with you.

    Yet, the reasons for voting yea or nay have very good reasons for both given.

    Apparently, with such a large bill, many feel that this was rushed. I would think so; I suspect the vote (pro or con) would have been closer if more time had been taken.
