Former Rep. and Tea Party darling Joe Walsh has filed a request in Cook County Circuit Court to cease paying child support payments because he is no longer employed, the Chicago Sun-Times reported on Monday.

What kind of man runs away from taking care of his own children?

The same kind that has them in his commercials when he's running for office!

Get a job moocher! What, no tea party welfare group have a gig for you?
Sorry Joe, but you fathered those children, isn't it up to you to find a way to provide for them?
I heard McDonald's is looking for help.

If I saw Joe Walsh at the entrance to MY Wal-Mart, I'd turn right around and go to Target!

Bet he's for raising the minimum wage now....

Shut up. He lives in my town. I don't want him making MY burgers.

You are so right on. Additionally, if Joe truly has no income, I guess he will have to go on the government dole as well? Is he now eligible for unemployment? Food stamps? Welfare checks? He appears to be an able-bodied American. So why doesn't he just get a job already and support his own kids?

What is the story here? No, the Sun-Times purposely tried to sully my name again and I will fight back against them and anyone else who does.
