Tea Party Tim

On day 16 of the Federal Government Shutdown, Erin Burnett of CNN interviewed Congressman Tim Huelskamp. During the interview Huelskamp added cuts to Medicare and Social Security to the list of demands by the Tea Party Caucus to reopen the government. Later at a Tea Party meeting Huelskamp made this recorded statement: “The Founders knew the preeminent branch of Power was Congress and the Preeminent Center of Power the U.S. House.”  Tim waived a pocket size copy of the Constitution while implying the Speaker of the House should retire as pictured below in a screen shot from the video.

His primary opponent, Alan LaPolice, has promised to make his first action in Congress a request to be appointed to the Agriculture Committee. Tim Huelskamp who represents a rural Congressional District was stripped of his appointment to the Agriculture Committee for disloyalty to Republican Party Leadership.  Click on below screenshot to view video.
