Get America working again.
"Congress needs to control spending and cut taxes for individuals and small businesses to create jobs. Let's develop America's great energy reserves and stop relying so much on foreign oil. Let's change forest policy and put people back to work in the woods making our forests healthier, producing biomass energy and lumber.
"As a small business owner for two decades, I understand what it takes to create jobs. Controlling federal spending and cutting taxes for individuals and small businesses will create jobs."
Stop the wasteful spending.
"Speaker Pelosi and the Congress need to stop wasting taxpayer money on big government takeovers and spending programs that don't produce jobs but leave our kids and grandkids with an unconscionable debt.
Taxpayers need real protection regardless of who is in charge in Washington. I've voted against the outrageous spending increases and support a constitutional limit on spending."
"Congress should put proposed legislation on the internet for everyone to read. Passing 2,000-page bills no one has read is just wrong."
"Walden deserves praise for championing an idea whose time has come: that our legislators, let alone the American public be granted a full 72 hours to read and-perhaps!-understand important legislation." Hood River News, 10-03-09
