As Congress battles budget issues, a Friday deadline looms over the proceedings. Congressman Greg Walden is front and center in the budget battle alongside House Speaker John Boehner, fighting for less spending and more government accountability.  Walden's spokesman, Andrew Whelan says in a written statement "Representative Walden is working to prevent a government shutdown while making real cuts in spending to improve the economy and job creation in the private sector.  He is participating in meetings, as he has all week, aimed at helping prevent a shutdown and reaching an agreement with the Democratic controlled Senate. His focus right now is on keeping the government open, funding our troops, and cutting the deficit.” If there is no deal by midnight Friday, when the current spending authorization measure expires, parts of the government will close down.
