Now HERE’s a Congressman with GUTS

Illinois congressman Joe Walsh (R) tells Obama to quit lying about defaulting on the debt.  The paragraph below is an excerpt from his short but very powerful video on the subject.  Read it, watch it, and please pass it along.

“…I don’t have your bully pulpit, but I can speak into a camera.  You don’t like ultimatums.  Tough.  Here’s my ultimatum:  I won’t place one more dollar of debt upon the backs of my kids and grand kids unless we structurally reform the way this town spends money.  Come on, President Obama, quit scaring the American people and quit talking about band-aids and peas.  Lead for a change.  Get members of your own party to support a balanced budget amendment.”
