Tim Walberg, "Defender of Economic Freedom!"

Congratulations are in order for Congressman Tim! He has been named a "Defender of Economic Freedom", by the Club for Growth! To qualify, Tim had to score above a 90% in their rankings, and by golly, Tim scored a 92%! I guess all that CFG campaign money really paid off! Tim must've gotten the message, as he improved on his 2007 "Repork Card" score of 86%!

Tim was ranked on the following issues:
Making the Bush tax cuts permanent
Death tax repeal
Cutting and limiting government spending
Social Security reform with personal retirement accounts
Expanding free trade
Legal reform to end abusive lawsuits
Replacing the current tax code
School choice
Regulatory reform and deregulation

Congratulations, Tim! I can't wait to see what Grover "drown it in the bathtub" Norquist and his anti-government lunatics have to say about you too!

Which reminds me of the story about the guy who asks the woman if she'd sleep with him for $20 million bucks and she thinks about it and say...yes. Then he asks her if she would for ten bucks and she's outraged and says what kind of person do you think I am? And the guy says we've already established that and now we're just negotiating the price...

Congressman Tim is bought and paid for and owes his seat because of the Club For Growth massive campaign contributions in 2006. Let's not forget what that makes him.
Walberg has been a pawn of huge corporate interests. Look at the bill he introduced which would ban fees local government can put on cell phones. Tim has been impotent in Congress, but he wants to micromanage what our local governments can do. The only reason is he is getting contributions from cell phone companies. If anyone knows how to dig this info up and prove my guess, I would love to see it.
Walberg simply voted "No" on most every issue and he's a "Defender of Freedom?"

What freedom is he defending?
