"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
- Theodore Roosevelt

Since I have entered Congress, I have been fighting to make Social Security & Medicare solvent & financially sound for future generations, while protecting current seniors' benefits. As a member of the House Ways & Means Committee, which has jurisdiction over revenue matters, I have helped deliver significant tax relief to spur economic growth & create jobs. I also serve on the House Budget Committee & the Joint Economic Committee.'
Reason for Seeking Public Office:
I wanted to address the many important issues affecting Wisconsin residents and to serve as an affective advocate for the First Congressional District.''
