    I love how Tea Party types always rant about personal responsibility and then refuse to take any for themselves.
    Imagine how Walsh would react if a guy who had just lost his minimum wage job was saying this. He would criticize the guy for not having savings and for being out of work because of his laziness.

    The are, of course, the champions of "family values". It would be hard to match the hypocrisy of these double-talking, hardline right wingers.

    Looks like no one reads stories any more (as posted below)- That being said- another reason for term limits- ALL of them should be limited so as not to make politics a career.

    “Two weeks ago, I did what every other father who is paying child support is supposed to do — by law — when their employment situation changes: I modified my support agreement,” Walsh said in a statement.“With my congressional term ending on Jan. 3, and with my ex-wife having been paid in full through my term in Congress, by law, I filed a modification of my support payments for my remaining un-emancipated child for these next four months. This modification called for me to pay my ex-wife 20 percent of my net income during these four months, which is my responsibility by law.”

    Cheeno, I think you are taking it too far to say that ALL tea partiers refuse to take responsibility just because Walsh does. But I totally agree with you that he would criticize a min wage earner who tried to get out of caring for his kids.

    So you lost your reelection bid. You don't sit and pout, you get off your collective ass and find another job to support your kids. Collect cans, flip burgers, deliver pizza, shovel crap, who cares. Find another line of work. You have kids, pay for them!!!

    To Walsh paying for those kids are just an entitlement program he wants cut. Another tax on his income. Thats tea party thinking for ya.

    @PoliticalSpice He's an embarrassment to the TEA Party. He preaches jobs then goes off wanting a reprieve from his responsibilities. I for one have no sympathy for the idiot. He can follow his own advice and get a job.

    @PoliticalSpice Now now, I'm not excusing them either. But there are plenty of CONgressional idiots on both sides of the aisle here. How about Anthony "show off the junk" Weiner, Robert "Likes little kids in the Dominican Republic" Menendez, William "Money in the freezer" Jefferson, David "Sex w/18yr olds" Wu. Again, that's why they're all idiots...all of them think they're above us so it must be okay for them to apparently get away with it...

    I guess he wants his kids to be on the government dole that he criticized for existing. It sure is easy to yell "Get a job!" until you can't get one yourself. Hey Joe, where you gonna run to now?

    Same could be said for many of the posters here, while I am a proponent of doing what you can to support yourself...I am proud that I have not been banned from Politix..and I avoid this by not lashing out at some of the more outlandish "get a job" people on here. I'd gladly get a job...when somebody can offer me the help I need to GET one.

    @PoliticalSpice Nah, he's too busy for that, like many current and former officials, he'd give someone access to his account to post on his behalf, and then fire 'em when they screw up.

    While his kids are past the need of the child support, he was ORDERED to pay and didn't and is now in arrears so much that most people would have had jailtime! If he wants the end of the payments, he should have to meat his arrears payments due and then have them canceled the same way MOST people have had theirs stopped. Believe me, that piece of shit ain't NOTHIN' special and deserves NO preferential treatment! In fact.......due to his former position, he ahould be made an example!

    And while Walsh was being sued for back child support last year, he loaned his campaign $35,000 and has paid himself back, plus he has taken a few international vacations with different girlfriends. He's been a deadbeat dad for nearly 10 years... How shameful that he doesn't think his kids are priority one...

    Pay your child support man. Then get into politics. See that's what I'm talking about. Everyone wants to be a politician and their not. Deadbeat parents and cheating spouses. Too... much.

    His employment has been terminated through no fault of his own? Seriously?? Who's fault is it that he's such a moron??

    This story is not true. Joe Walsh's kids are 25, 22, and 18. He is suing the Chicago Sun Times and I hope he wins.

    If that were my ex, his ass would be sitting in a jail cell. Get a freaking job and pay your support. You were the one that created them, therefore it is your responsibility to support them. Period. I HATE men like this.

    It's time for him to suck it up and get a job. Reduce payments for now with the requirement to pay the rest later with interest. I agree with the Tea Party the people need to take personal responsibility. Time for him to step up.

    Agreed. He needs to put his money where his mouth is, otherwise, he's just another political hack hypocrite.

    I am a male and I am going say that I cannot stand a man not taking responsibility in taking care of his children. I say Mr. Walsh needs to spend time in Hard Labor!

    So why is it OK that we pay for generations of welfare moms with 8 or 9 kids to 8 or 9 different sperm donors (notice I didn't use the words man or father), & some where the male half is even unknown , but hey no questions - just support them forever. But let a working class father run into financial problems & nothing can be done. Double Standards , bet on it - if you have a history of working & have proven you have an earning capacity & ability , you're screwed by the system . BUT, if your family has proven itself over 30 or 40 years to being a complete waste of human flesh by being unable to produce at least a few semi-productive individuals - no problem , cradle to grave entitlements for the parasites.

    Why would you be "afraid" the answer is yes? Let him see the kind of justice every other father who fails to pay child support gets.

    Eliminate it..no. Adjust it to an appropriate amount?...Yes. The child support system is unfair. Their motivation is making interest and receiving matching federal dollars for money paid by parents. Good luck getting an adjustment to lower payments but they'll jump through their a** to increase it. Lol I pay 60% of my income to the Atty Gen office. And if someone doesn't pay it, they'll throw you in jail. It's like being on parole. And then I have to somehow pay for my own house? Bankrupting a parent is not beneficial to a child.
