Walberg’s votes show he is ‘faithful to proven values and principles’

To the Editor,Congressman Tim Walberg is to be commended for his two recent votes: 1) “YES” on H.J. Res. 59 on September 20 to defund Obamacare and 2) “NO” on H.R. 2775 on October 16 to raise the debt ceiling.Many people who were previously deceived into believing that Obamacare was high quality and affordable are now realizing the falsehood under which it was “sold” to the public. Congressman Walberg voted to defund the implementation of this “train wreck.” In contrast to substandard socialized healthcare, the Republican Party Platform states the goal: “to achieve a free market in healthcare and ensure competition.” The American people were threatened that unless the debt ceiling was raised, the U.S. government would default on its debt. Congressman Walberg’s “NO” vote reflects the philosophy of the tripartite test in the Republican Party Platform for federal spending: “First, is it within the constitutional scope of the federal government? “Second, is it effective and absolutely necessary?“And third, is it sufficiently important to justify borrowing, especially foreign borrowing, to fund it?”The debt ceiling raise did not meet the criteria. The growing deficit of nearly $17 trillion is being dumped on the backs of our children and grandchildren.President Obama’s 16-day shutdown of the federal government was deceitful and shameful. It is despicable that he closed, barricaded, and sandbagged the World War II Memorial, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall, and many others.Congressman Walberg voted in favor of (4) separate pieces of legislation which would have funded the entire government. He also voted for $14) bipartisan bills to reopen the following critical parts of the government:Pediatric Cancer Research, National Parks, Memorials and Monuments, Veterans Benefits, National Guard and Army Reserve Personnel Pay. Disaster Relief, Benefits for Low-Income Women and Children, Back Pay for Furloughed Federal Employees Food and Medicine Supply Safety, Essential Federal Employees Pay, and Head Start Programs.Death Gratuities and Related Survivor Benefits for Deceased Military Service Members, Air Traffic Safety, Homeland Security, and Nuclear Safety and Security.The refusal by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and President Obama to bring these bills to a vote in the Senate demonstrates their willingness to cause harm and disgrace to the American people to advance their agenda.Congressman Walberg’s recent votes have shown him faithful to proven values and principles that sustain a strong economy.Ronda KeckSand Creek
