MADISON, Wis. - Governor Scott Walker is calling on President Obama to make tough decisions and tackle the nation's debt and deficit.
"We need that kind of bold leadership again today to get our fiscal house on track and to get our economy back in order, but more big goverment is not the answer as the president contends," said Walker.
Less than two weeks since Walker made U.S history as the first governor to rise above a recall, he was asked to deliver the GOP radio address to the nation Saturday.
Walker referred to spending cuts and less regulation as how he's turning a deficit economy into a surplus in Wisconsin and he said that could put the entire country back on track if done at the national level.
"Let this be the moment in history when we can tell our children and our grandchildren that we helped restore our country's greatness again," said Walker.
The governor will join Congressman Paul Ryan in greeting Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney as he campaigns in Janesville Monday.
They'll be at the manufacturer Monterey Mills.
