COLDWATER, MI (WTVB) - Congressman Tim Walberg last night told a Town Hall meeting of Tea Party supporters in Coldwater, the Common Sense Patriots group, to continue backing his efforts to cut spending.
Walberg said reducing the deficit is a tough job and he stressed that if local constituents, the voters, and taxpayers don’t stand up and continue to push, the nation has big, big problems. Walberg said he’s committed to making sure that it’s not just about the next election but it’s about the next generation.
He also spoke of a new federal requirement linked to the administration’s health care reform program that he compared to spying on doctors. Walberg said President Obama has now authorized an investigation, or in another word, the Congressman termed, spying, on physicians to find out if they’re following the plan he referred to as Obamacare.
Walberg said it would be carried out through various means and wondered while we’re worried about wire-tapping and other such issues, the administration is having Big Brother watch over doctors. He asked don’t they have enough to do just keeping us healthy.
