I just watched Rep. Huelskamp hold up on taxes and guns under a withering attack by six leftists on Morning Joe. Thank God and Kansas for sending conservatives with backbone to Washington. I understand the freshman representative was instrumental in defeating Boehner's Plan B because as he just stated, "I see no reason whatsoever to take any action that would hurt jobs". He kept reiterating that we have a spending problem that is not being addressed. On guns,he was battered over his refusal to back a new AWB. As they cut to commercial, you could hear two or three on the panel exclaiming, "Wow", as though they couldn't believe anyone with a brain could hold such positions. When they returned from commercial and Mr. Huelskamp was no longer there to defend himself, they pilloried him for failing to move an inch toward their favored "compromise". 'Patriot' is the word that kept popping into my mind.
