ROCKFORD - Sunday, an emboldened Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) pointed his Facebook followers to a Rockford Star editorial that lauds Kinzinger for slamming Ted Cruz and Congressional colleagues that stood against the debt ceiling being raised in last week's vote. Earlier in the week, the Congressman also criticized colleagues for how they handled the government shutdown.
The home district editorial Kinzinger referenced called the small cadre of budget hawks in Congress -including Congressman Randy Hultgren, who was the only Illinois "no" vote on the debt ceiling vote - "nihilists" and "bullies":
One who did show his mettle, however, was Rep. Adam Kinzinger, the Channahon Republican whose congressional district includes a chunk of the Rockford area. Kinzinger didnt just vote for the deal that ended the shutdown. He also called out the nihilists in his own party. Were talking about you, Ted Cruz.
In ordinary times, Kinzingers decision to do whats right for the nation by refusing to cede his brain and conscience to the biggest bullies in the Republican caucus might not be remarkable.

Didn’t he kill poor Hattie Carroll?
I am not a fan of “FaceBook”, but I hope everyone else is...the “social media” seems crucial to getting the message out, and I’m shocked and saddened to hear that a so-called “tea party” Congressman has used the venue to excoriate some of his fellow Congress members. Perhaps he is a “TPINO”?? Sheesh!
If the GOP loses the House it will be because of Vichy Rupublicans like this stooge.
DAVID HALE FOR CONGRESS
This fraud, dirtbag Kinzinger needs to GO!!!
Did about 1000 voters in his district give him an 8 minute standing ovation?
Remembering the most important is GET BUSY!!
Get up off the couch and take back your country!
Ted Cruz? Yes!
I was trying to be sarcastic about Kiszinger.
I’m sure 1000 of his district voters did NOT give Kiszinger an 8 minute
ovation when he went back to Ill.
I think he wanted to bomb Syria as well.
Some of these RINOs are ridiculous. They will link nothing but opinion pieces on how awesome they are.
"A primary challenge"
Did that Rockville rag even support either the congressman or Romney in 2012?
KInzinger likes to hear his voice on Chicago radio. That needs to stop.
He should get used to hearing himself referred to as ‘former Congressman Kinzinger’.
