Michigan Congressman-Elect Says Obama Has To Follow Republican Mandate, Or Government Shuts Down

Posted by | November 4, 2010 18:50 | Filed under: Top Stories

Michigan Congressman-elect Tim Walberg, who lost his seat two years ago but won it back on Tuesday, says if the president doesn’t follow along with the Republican mandate, it will result in a government shut-down.

He said Republicans can work together to get things done with the Obama administration, but that will be up to the president.

If Obama, like then-President Bill Clinton did after the 1994 midterms, responds to the mandate from voters and understands he can’t disregard it, then he thinks Obama will do well.

“If he doesn’t, he will shut government down,” Walberg said.

As Think Progress notes, Walberg is a birther who who isn’t sure whether Obama is Muslim, and thinks impeaching the president would be a good way to get him to reveal his birth certificate.
