From the Walsh campaign -
Thursday, Rep. Joe Walsh and Tammy Duckworth sat down with The Chicago Tribune Editorial Board to discuss the big issues in this election.
When pressed repeatedly by The Chicago Tribune Editorial Board on the looming financial crisis facing entitlements, including Medicare, Ms. Duckworth shockingly responded, "I’m not ready to look at that now."
“The facts are simple; in the next few years this county will face a major catastrophe when Medicare goes bankrupt, which is why I was so disappointed that my opponent wasn’t ready to discuss the issue of entitlement reform. Voters deserve leaders in Washington who won’t duck out on these tough issues.
"If Tammy is not ready to discuss the most pressing issue in this country, she is clearly not ready to be a Member of Congress,” concluded Walsh.
