Tim Walberg attends ribbon cutting for facility funded with Recovery Act funds he opposed (updated w/ photo)


Yesterday afternoon, there was a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new facility at the Veterans Administration Ann Arbor Medical Center.

The VA Ann Arbor Medical Center will hold an open house for its Hematology-Oncology Infusion Center on Monday. […]

Infusion therapy is a type of treatment in which medications or other treatment agents are delivered directly into the body via a vein. This type of therapy is used when oral therapy would not be practical, safe or effective, according to a news release.

The open house will highlight the features of the $763,000 project, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

Turns out that my Congressman, Rep. Tim Walberg (MI-07), was at the ceremony. This is “interesting” because Tim Walberg was adamantly opposed to the Recovery Act and even sent his constituents an email with the title “Stimulus Results in Higher Unemployment & Jobs Overseas”.

Here’s Walberg, talking to a reporter from an Ann Arbor newspaper (which has yet to report on the event.)

The question is whether or not he was asked why on earth he would attend an event he doesn’t think ever should have happened in the first place?

For more of Walberg’s anti-Recovery Act rhetoric, check out my piece from February 2010 titled “Unrelenting GOPocrisy from Tim Walberg”.

Clearly being elected back into office hasn’t turned off the Walberg hypocrisy spigot…
