Union groups protest outside Republican congressman's office
About two dozen union members demonstrated outside the Jackson office of Republican congressman Tim Walberg. The protest was as much about the 2012 election as it was about the budget fight in Washington.
Some passing motorists honked their horns, showing solidarity with protesters outside Congressman Tim Walberg’s office. The protesters, like teacher’s assistant Glenda Wells, say Walberg has sided too often with special business interests at the expense of working men and women.
“He says he’s for the people…then he needs to prove it.”
Walberg’s office released a statement saying the president and Senate Democrats are the ones standing in the way of economic progress and job creation.
