Congressman Peter Roskam (IL-06) released the latest installment of Ask Peter today, a frequent video conversation with Sixth District residents about issues important to them. In this segment, Congressman Roskam answers an email from Zachary Benson, a 27 year old from Wheaton, who wrote in about the fiscal cliff, concerned about our country's long-term economic and fiscal outlook.

"President Obama has called for a balanced approach. He got his revenues, now it's time to find out where the rest of the balance is. And that's where we need to work -- to find cuts that make sure that they work and are sustainable, but ultimately to work together to reform our tax code. That's where we can create the type of economic growth that can transform our economy and bring us together as a nation, getting rid of corporate cronyism and the loopholes and nonsense that have so hamstrung us over these past several years."
Ask Peter videos are available to the public at Roskam.house.gov, facebook.com/reproskam, twitter.com/peterroskam, and via press release. The videos are sent to constituents via e-mail, Facebook, or Twitter, depending on how they contacted the Roskam office.
