U.S. Rep. Joe Walsh (R-8) says he will skip President Barack Obama's
jobs speech on September 8. Instead, the Tea Party politician says he
will be in Illinois to attend a small business forum in the 8th
“I don’t see the point in being a prop for another of the President’s speeches asking for more failed stimulus spending and more subsidies for his pet projects," said Walsh in a statement. "Instead, I will fly back to Illinois right after Thursday’s votes to talk to small businessmen and women, the real job creators, about creating real jobs.”
The scheduling details for the forum have yet to be released.
