House Tea Party Members Get Tough on Debt Plan
Some good Sunday morning TV on ABC’s “This Week.” Freshman congressional members of the Tea Party spoke with a unanimous voice on plans to raise the debt ceiling – essentially saying "no dice without spending cuts."

Some good Sunday morning TV on ABC’s “This Week.” Freshman congressional members of the Tea Party spoke with a unanimous voice on plans to raise the debt ceiling – essentially saying "no dice without spending cuts."
 
Joe Walsh, (R-Ill.), said, “If you’re going to ask this Congress to support a raise in the debt ceiling, there’s got to be something structural on the spending side.”
 
Steve Southerland, (R-Fla.), went on to say, “We’ve got to have some guarantees going forward … that if we raise the debt ceiling, that we get this economy on a trajectory to where we service our debt.”
 
Allen West (R-Fla.), talked specifics on tax cuts saying, “… now is a great time, when we can cut our corporate business tax rate in half. Bring it from 35 percent to 20 to 22 percent because there’s a lot of capital just sitting out there that we could use to invest in long-term sustainable job growth … This is not about a debt ceiling raised, this really comes down to a debt suggestion.”
 
Renee Ellmers, (R-N.C.) – also a former nurse – threw her support behind Republican House budget committee chairman Paul Ryan’s plan to overhaul Medicare and Medicaid. Ellmers expressed the urgency in tackling the entitlement problem saying, “If we do not address Medicare as it is, it will not be there for our children or our grandchildren.”
