Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) declared that the GOP Congress should put forth a “big, bold conservative agenda” on Tuesday’s “Laura Ingraham Show.”
Walker told Ingraham that he “didn’t have a problem” with House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) retaining his current position as long as he and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) “put [forth] a big, bold conservative agenda that…appropriately matches the will of the people” to provide a contrast between the agendas of the GOP and Obama.
Walker outlined his accomplishmens as governor, and his future plans. He added that “big bold” conservative accomplishments were key to GOP victories, citing the victories of GOP governors in states like Florida, Michigan, and Ohio.
Speaking on federal issues, he stated that Congress “shouldn’t put one penny down” towards the president’s executive action on immigration, and urged the House GOP to join the lawsuit against the president by Walker and Teas Governor Greg Abbott (R). He continued on immigration “I don’t think we should be doing a thing, particularly until we secure this border, not just because of immigration issues. But, increasingly, because I’m concerned it’s a national security threat.” And declared the cromnibus a problem that Congress had to fix.
