Back in Nashville Monday, Williams listened as Rep. Steve McManus, R-Memphis, gave an 11-minute lecture against the federal stimulus package. From the podium, Williams responded:
"I was in Shelby County this weekend and I probably met with a different group than you met with. I met with a group that really wasn't concerned about IRAs because they didn't have any. They weren't concerned about retirement, because they didn't have any. They were concerned about getting food on their table and some of them, the elderly are worried if they are going to die if they don't have their medications. So there are two sides to this issue."
