Bohener Vs Walden
I’m glad to see Congressman Greg Walden stick by
his guns. The conservative eastern Oregon
representative laid down some tough criticism on the President’s budget
regarding the way it balances on the banks of America’s seniors. But top House republican John Boehner saw the
need to call Walden…who’s junior to him in the political universe of
Washington…on the carpet. Many times
when an elected official stakes out a position on an issue and gets heat for it
we see them back down. That’s
foolish. If you’re not willing to stand
up for what you say…then stay out of the business of politics. Walden didn't back down.
Meantime, Boehner told the whole country this
week that he doesn't need a republican majority in the house to pass some of
these liberty robbing gun regulations the President has been pushing. This week we’ve already seen 16 turn coat
republicans in the senate agree to let those gun rules go forward. Can you
imagine Boehner is hinting he might join the democrats in passing new laws that
the majority of Americans oppose.
If it comes down to Boehner or Walden…I can tell you who I support.
