Walberg Takes Credit for Schwarz's Work
(Thanks to a reader for e-mailing me about this.)
The Battle Creek Enquirer reports that Congressman Tim Walberg announced a new $550,000 grant for the Family Health Center of Battle Creek. It's a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), which means it often serves underprivileged residents who may not be able to afford health care elsewhere. One of the physicians that works there is none other than Dr. Joe Schwarz, former representative of Michigan's 7th District.
So it's good that Congressman Walberg got them this grant, right?
Well, not quite. From the Enquirer article:
In other words, then-Congressman Schwarz fought for the grant, but current-Congressman Walberg is trying to pass it off as one of his accomplishments, even though it's an idea he opposes.
Real classy, Congressman Walberg.
