As a reminder, my staff holds mobile office hours every Friday from 12:00 p.m.- 4:00 p.m. at the Schaumburg Township Center, located at One Illinois Blvd in Hoffman Estates. If you cannot make it to one of my district offices, let us come to you!
This week, our national debt exceeded $16 trillion for the first time in history -- amounting to more than $50,000 of debt for every man, woman and child in the United States. With record debt and deficits, it is time that Congress gets serious about ending its unsustainable spending habits. As a member of the bi-partisan Fix Congress Now caucus, I have co-sponsored the No Budget, No Pay Act that would ensure that Members of Congress are not paid if they fail to pass a budget. I will continue to work with my Congressional colleagues from both sides of the aisle to change the way that Washington spends your hard-earned money.
