hey, that's my house!
One member of the House delegation has taken a principled stance against trips paid for by third parties: Democratic Rep. Tim Walz. When Walz has traveled, it has been as part of U.S. House delegations, with official funds, usually from the congressional committee organizing the trip, picking up the tab.
Walz is to be commended for his conscientious position. Members of Congress should be traveling to educate themselves on the issues. But it should be considered an official expense and not done on someone else’s dime.
Earlier, Walz led a successful effort to increase disclosure of Congress members’ stock market profits. The energetic congressman from southern Minnesota would garner Minnesotans’ support if he leads a new charge to rein in trips paid for by influence-seekers.
His name is Jeff Johnson and he promises to “go all Scott Walker on Minnesota.”

Notably absent from this video is any discussion of the fact that the primary reason Target does not want any of its employees to unionize is not because it fears a loss of its precious "culture," but because it fears having to pay higher wages and provide better benefits and working conditions. I don't know how that bit was left out of the script. Quite an oversight.
