Walsh lives what he preaches

Success - Article sent! close

Here we go again with the smears against Joe Walsh I know Joe and did some work on his last campaign. From what I saw, he is nothing more than an honorable, honest, hardworking guy. Yes, he has a big mouth. Well, he has a lot to say!

His intention was to clean up government where he could, and he did his best. He was the only congressman who came home every weekend during the two years he served in order to inform and be informed by his constituents. He slept on an air mattress in his office to save taxpayer money. In addition, he refused his government health insurance, again to save the taxpayers money. How many do you know who do those things?

Tammy Duckworth beat him in November because of a huge influx of Democratic National Committee money on her behalf and, of course, the redrawing on district lines by the Democrats. This ought to work out really well for Washington. Look how well the Democrats are solving all of Chicago/Illinois problems!
