Wisconsin's First District Congressman Paul Ryan announced that he will hold a round of listening sessions throughout Southern Wisconsin in early May. Congressman Ryan will be visiting 6 communities on Thursday, May 3rd, and Friday, May 4th, to speak with area residents about solutions to put the budget on a path to balance and the nation on a path to prosperity.
In advance of the meetings, Ryan offered the following statement: "Many Wisconsinites are rightly frustrated with the direction our country is heading and are looking for leadership from Washington. The Senate has failed to pass a budget in over 1,000 days and the President's budget ensures a future of doubt and decline - I believe Wisconsinites deserve better. We need to have a serious discussion about what kind of nation we want to be in the 21st century and that is why I have continued to offer solutions that would pay off our debt, strengthen Medicare and critical safety net programs, and expand economic opportunities for all Americans.
"These listening sessions provide a great opportunity for me to discuss the major legislative proposals before Congress, answer questions, and address the concerns of First District residents. Wisconsinites remain eager for solutions that will get our economy back on track and I'm looking forward to speaking with those I serve about how we'll accomplish this."
