Occupy Wall Street is a well-orchestrated Socialist movement

Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) slammed Occupy Wall Street protesters during a town hall meeting, calling the movement a "well-orchestrated, well-funded, far left effort to disrupt the American people" before admitting that he had never attended a protest.

Walsh, who apologized last week after screaming at a constituent during a similar event, was reacting to constituent criticism of the Occupy movement when he let them know how he felt about it, to a mix of applause and boos.

Walsh said that Occupy protesters are "generally spoiled, pampered, unfocused, clueless young people and a smattering of other people who don't understand this country and are advocating anti-American solutions."

When one constituent stood up and pointed out that veterans have participated in the Occupy movement, Walsh brushed it off. "I don't know how many veterans are part of the Occupy protest," he said. "I can't imagine it's many. But anyone who would advocate socialist solutions--they don't understand this country."

Index capital gains tax to inflation

Today, Congressman Joe Walsh introduced H.R. 2945 to increase capital access for individuals and small businesses looking to invest and create jobs. Specifically, the bill will amend the Internal Revenue Code to index the capital gains tax to inflation so that taxes are not paid on inflation.

"This bill will benefit all Americans and create quality jobs in our communities," said Congressman Walsh. "By not forcing Americans to pay taxes on inflation, we are providing much needed tax relief to American families and freeing up the capital that businesses need to hire more employees."

"This is the type of real action that Washington needs to take to remove impediments to job growth in this country. Throwing more irresponsible stimulus money at the problem is not going to create jobs. Common-sense tax and regulatory reforms like my bill will enable American families and businesses to create jobs now and invest in the future."
