Ryan Announces Upcoming Listening Sessions
First District Congressman Paul Ryan announced the schedule for listening sessions to be held from March 30 - April 6. Ryan plans to visit 34 communities throughout Wisconsin's First Congressional District. These meetings provide an opportunity for First District residents to share their ideas and ask questions they have about federal government issues.
Among other issues, Ryan will discuss the need to balance the budget without raising taxes and make government more accountable for what it spends. He will also talk about reforms that can help lower the cost of health care and put power and information in patients' hands.
"These listening sessions give me the chance to hear directly from those who live and work in the First District about what concerns them - from health care costs, to government overspending, to the situation in Iraq. I hope that people will find at least one meeting in their area that they can attend," Ryan said.
