Paulsen: 'Cyber Warrior' Medals Should Rank Below Medals for Combat

The congressman also addressed a Joint Economic Committee on the United States' debt.

U.S. Rep. Erik Paulsen said in his weekly video that he is backing legislation that would make a new medal for the military's "cyber warriors" rank lower than medals for soldiers who participate in combat. See Paulsen's "Correspondence Corner" video above or at YouTube.com.

Last week, Paulsen addressed a hearing of Congress' Joint Economic Committee on the topic of the nation's debt crisis. See a video of those remarks in the Storify window above (use the scroll bar at the right of the window), or at Storify.com or YouTube.com.

Paulsen represents Minnesota's Third Congressional District, which includes Maple Grove, Edina, Plymouth, Eden Prairie, and Minnetonka and the other cities around Lake Minnetonka.

If only our elected politicians had the same courage to actually Declare War when we commit troops onto the battlefield for an extended period of time as they do when they take these incredibly courageous (LOL) stands - perhaps the politicians who take this stand should receive a medal for their awesome courage...
