Walsh’s pension

To the Editor:

A recent advertisement by Congressman Joe Walsh caught my attention. His approach has repeatedly indicated that entitlements are wrong.

In his ads, he indicates that he turned down the congressional medical program and that he only will run for three terms.

I found his term limits interesting. Apparently he would be entitled to a congressional pension after serving five years. If he is a man of his word, will he turn that down as well?
