Congressman Walberg's first votes.
On his first full day as a Congressman Tim Walberg cast some lovely votes. The Washington Post has a nice article about the Pay As You Go rules that the House adopted.
Mr. Walberg voted against this rule. Title 4 of HR 6.
Also from the Post article.
The House voted 280 to 152 to approve the rules, which drew the support of 48 Republicans.Title 4 also deals with Earmarks. I thought Tim had problems with Earmarks? During his debate with Joe Schwarz he complained about some of Joe's votes and listed items like The Bridge to Nowhere, and swimming pools. Now I know that these rules changes do not eliminate Earmarks, but they do let us know where they come from. This is a good first step.
