Posted on 04/10/2010 5:05:03 AM PDT by Son House
Congressman Tim Walz came to Austin Friday, talking with businesses about jobs, energy, and financial services.
But the hot topic was health care reform.
Super Fresh in Austin was of many stops for Congressman Walz as he checks in with local businesses.
"To get a feel for are people felling optimist are we doing the right things, moving in the right direction so it's just to make sure Im very, very familiar and in tune with what's going on out here," said Congressman Tim Walz.
Walz recently voted for the health care reform bill, a big topic with local businesses.
"I think its big for America, but more importantly it's big for small business," said owner of Super Fresh, Jim Stiles.
"The system is broken it needs to be fixed but I don't believe government is the one to fix it," said owner of Cedar River Horse Logging, Tim Carroll.
Whether they support it or not, businesses owners are questioning how the bill is going to affect them.
"The law has passed but then you have rules and the rules haven't been put out yet," said owner of Donkers Appliance, Ralph Donker.
"I'm on a freeze, I dont do anything with my business until I figure out if I can survive or not hiring employees is just not a option until I know where I stand," said Carroll.
And Walz isn't one bit surprised with all the questions.
"We did not do a good job of putting out the information of what's in there and if there's a vacuum and there no information and it was filled with bad data and I don't blame people for being nervous about this," said Walz.
Walz adds main street feedback is something he takes seriously.
"Nothing's carved in stone, we can keep the stuff that works and throw out the stuff that doesn't," said Walz.
In the meantime, business owners say they're reading up on the bill to figure out what's in it for them and what's not.

bad data =>the truth about what’s in the bill, or the promise of free health care? Guess it will depend on who he is talking to, the poor or the business owners
“”Nothing’s carved in stone, we can keep the stuff that works and throw out the stuff that doesn’t,” said Walz.
Really!!??? It’s not carved in stone?
How are we going to figure out what doesn’t work? Who is going to decide what parts don’t work? How long will it take to figure out the unworkable parts? How many businesses will go bankrupt trying to figure out the “stuff that doesn’t” work?
Did you look at the models in Tennessee and Massachusettes and see what worked and didn’t work there BEFORE you were part of the cabal that voted in this healthcare???
Did monkeys write this?
“Nothing’s carved in stone, we can keep the stuff that works and throw out the stuff that doesn’t,” said Walz.
That about sums it up...I don’t know what I voted for but it fixes everything...if not we’ll change it....
Cong. Walz Returns To His Teaching Roots For A Day
MSU Professor Daniel Levin’s Environment of Business class had a prominent guest lecturer today. Congressman Tim Walz stopped by to give a lesson on Why the National Debt Matters.
Rep. Tim Walz says, “Talking about the debt, what I want is to show you why this is going to effect your career, why it’s going to effect your standard of living...”
And Congressman Tim Walz voted for the biggest cost to them, the Stimulus and Health sCare bills that will decrease both their job opportunities and standard of living
Good point, you’ve nailed it
Uh, Representative Walz, that's what the debate time is for. Once a bill is passed, it is carved in stone.
One more example of avoiding the adults while on Easter break;
Walz(D-Mn) to Students: Bipartisan Solution Needed with National Debt
Standing before a crowd of high school students, 1st District Rep. Tim Walz pointed to a screen with a 14-digit number sprawled across the screen. That number, amounting to more than $12.6 trillion, is the current national debt.
“Whoa,” said a high-schooler seated in the crowd.
During an all-school assembly Tuesday at St. Charles High School, Walz made the case that students need to care about the rising debt levels because their future depends on it. He said now is the time for politicians of both parties to work on a solution.
“When the government spends more money than it takes in, your family pays the price,” the Democrat told students.
If he gets re-elected those people deserve to go bankrupted. They should be applying Tar and Feathers to the little commie prick.
Pounded with healthcare questions? They should have pounded him with a salami instead!
That's not what he said. He said:
To going to get a feelsy for are people minds felling optimist are we somekinda doing walla the right river things to s bssket, only street moving in time to the right beat of a direction so in place it's just imagination to make harm I'm sure Im want to very, very uncle familiar and and dancing in tune with salmon and what's yellow about calamari going on out a date here," said Congressman Tim Walz.
Sure hope MN wakes up and votes this phony out of office.

Too bad he didn’t check with them BEFORE he voted yes on the Deathcare Bill.
Walz is nothing but a Pelosi handmaiden. His miserable voting record will finally catch up with him this fall and we’ll be rid of him.
I have noticed a steep drop in composition and proofreading skills in news articles from all sources
he knew if he read it he couldnt vote for it...now he can just call himself stupid.
People knew that.
Apparently there remain some members of Congress who don't understand what that means.
