In a Feb. 22 column by Kerry Lester and Mike Riopell, ex-Congressman Joe Walsh railed against everyone, including Democrats and Republicans. It seems pretty high-minded of him to think that he's the only one with all the answers. Apparently, the voters disagree, however. Apparently, they don't believe his radical raving is the best way to get this country back on the path of growth.
Perhaps they have a hard time accepting a guy as the spokesman for fiscal responsibility who was slapped with tax liens for unpaid federal and state taxes, who was sued by his ex-wife for back child support and by his former campaign manager for nonpayment of wages, who lost his driver's license for failure to maintain insurance, and who lost a home in foreclosure. And now he's been out of work for almost two months, even though he knew two months in advance that his job was ending.
His time might be better spent looking for gainful employment and not running around shaking his finger at everyone. In the article, Joe complains that "we're taxed too much." Perhaps he's right. But somebody's got to pay for the unemployment benefits for all those people who can't get a job.
