ICYMI: Rep. Schweikert in the Washington Post

Congratulations to Congressman Schweikert on an article in the Washington Post on Tuesday written by Philip Rucker.

I’m writing this post to give you the opportunity to show your support for David or to at least give him your opinion. For those of us who worked on David’s campaigns, watching him finally serve is a huge reward knowing he now gets to make the hard decisions we entrusted him with. I for one, certainly don’t envy being in his position but like many others, I do trust him to do the right thing for this country. Unfortunately, we’ve run out of money and patience. Democrats and some Republicans have run out of basic economic common sense and alarmingly, we are all running out of time.

Here’s an excerpt from that article:

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — On his 104th day in office, Rep. David Schweikert stepped before about 60 of his constituents here and, like an economics professor, flipped through one scary chart after another to hammer home his point: America faces a tidal wave of debt.

Then he asked for a show of hands: If you were a freshman congressman like him, would you vote to raise the government’s debt limit?

Two hands went in the air.

He got the same reaction at another town hall meeting, and he expects it again at a tea party forum later this week.

Schweikert, a Republican, isn’t sure if he’d raise his hand, either.

This is his dilemma: He knows Congress has little choice but to raise the amount of money the government can borrow to prevent the economic havoc sure to follow if the United States defaults on its loans. He also knows doing so is deeply unpopular — not only among his conservative base, but among some moderates and liberals, too.

“I desperately want to vote ‘no,’ ” Schweikert said at the town hall. “I also desperately don’t want [the economy] to crash.” (continue reading)
