    The Wall

    The wall of shame has served its purpose.

    There isn't a Republican congressman who occupied its space who was not made aware of it often by supporters or those who wanted to put it in their face as a means of showing disapproval.

    The wall is now empty for the time being, yet the violation of principle must be acknowledged in a more permanent way.  As a means of keeping more permanently the record of the occupiers and their decision to saddle our future with more debt, I am making it into a post (this post) that will be searchable forevermore.  As I wrote:

    "This wall  is not because we hate you guys, but because we respected and counted on you.  Conservatives expect bad legislation out of progressives and the Democrats.  Getting along just cannot cut it anymore. Shape up and "know your power."

    And now it resides below the line.

    There is still opportunity for those described here to self reflect.  There is still time for those who are considering primaries to file and declare their principled ideas and solutions.  Let the debate begin.


    This wall  is not because we hate you guys, but because we respected and counted on you.  Conservatives expect bad legislation out of progressives and the Democrats.  Getting along just cannot cut it anymore. Shape up and "know your power."

    Congressman Dan Benishek

    Benishek, a beneficiary of the Stupak collapse because of Stupak's cave to Obama on health care.  A tea party favored candidate who easily won in 2010.  Will this freshman survive his vote to saddle our youth with trillions more in debt?  Congressman Benishek currently represents Michigan's 1st District.

    Congressman Bill Huizenga

    Huizenga, another recipient of  tea party sympathy, claimed the debt bill wasn't what he liked as he voted for it.  Obviously, his hand was forced.  U.S. Rep. Bill Huizenga currently represents the 2nd District of Michigan.

    Congressman Dave Camp

    Camp, the ways and means chair, earned through long time loyalty to party mechanics and seniority in the house easily voted for adding trillions in debt to our country.  A successful primary challenge would send a very strong message to would be candidates about the strength of conservative values. Congressman Camp currently represents Michigan's 4th District.

    Congressman Fred Upton

    Upton, the light bulb baron and long time party man. Another expected failure like camp to stand for something. Voted to give Obama that blank check.  Congressman Fred Upton currently represents Michigan's 6th District.

    Congressman Tim Walberg

    Walberg was a great big surprise, in that a solidly conservative congressman would join in the mess that was that debt bill vote.  Completely disappointed.  Congressman Walberg currently serves Michigan's 7th District.

    Congressman Mike Rogers

    Rogers was one of those who hung around in 2008 to make a point and stand his ground when then speaker Pelosi was stealing from the nation with her CLNE scheme.  Was proud of him then, but not now as his vote contributed to unchecked spending in the trillions. Congressman Mike Rogers currently represents Michigan's 8th District.

    Congresswoman Candice Miller

    Miller, always a hard worker, is like many who don't understand how false pragmatism feeds the beast of  debt and obligation.  Her vote helped Obama.  Congresswoman Candice Miller represents Michigan's 10th District.

    Congressman Thaddeus McCotter

    McCotter, arguably one of the bigger brains in the house, and now candidate for president, ought to know better than to expand our obligations with no guarantee of debt reduction.  Apparently he didn't.  Too bad. Shame.  Congressman Thaddeus McCotter currently represents Michigan's 11h District.
