Walberg Dissembles with Bush Aide in Tow

Today's Jackson Citizen Patriot provides another example of why Tim Walberg is not our man in Washington. His most recent claim is that he voted against the 2007 farm bill because it ostensibly raises taxes on manufacturers. Strangely, as someone who pays quite a bit of attention to the news and follows these issues, I have not heard one iota of a complaint from Michigan manufacturers on the farm bill. John Engler, the former governor who is now head of the national manufacturing lobby, hasn't uttered a word as well. And, of course, Democrats say it's not true.

Oh well, I guess I should be used to this by now. Walberg peddles the usual B.S. that Club for Growth feeds him. Further proof of how ineffective he is. I'm sure the farmers are none too happy.
"When you put on a 600 percent tax increase on any company in Michigan,
something's going to happen," Walberg said. "I'm not going to say all the jobs
will go, but surely some of them will."

Spoken like a true economist. Somebody save us from this guy.

Tim Walberg has one goal which is to say he voted against a tax increase whenever he had the chance to do so. Tim Walberg is not our man in Washington and this is only one of the many reasons why.
