Congressman Aaron Schock is the Congressional Representative who is seeking reelection to the House. He is the youngest Representative. I had the privilege of interviewing him this year primarily at that time in conjunction with the passage (at that time potential passage) of President Obama’s health care program. I was advised it would pass. I asked then what the price to the bullying Democrats might be and he said payment in November. So far he is right.
I am 61-years-old. I have found unless you are independently wealthy the older you get the more fearful you get. Yes there is social security but rarely is it enough to live one and further there are no guarantees. Governments can change policy.
I am against Obama and the Democratic Congress. Obama is constantly trying to find ways to borrow money from the taxpayers with no way to pay it back. He never wants to answer questions. He always wants to move quickly. Note in the article I wrote about Obama and Pelosi that Pelosi said having more Federal spending made “good sense and was good politics.” Since when did we want decisions based on good politics?
The more money that is spent the more I worry. That is why I want to keep conservatives like Aaron Schock in office. For example Schock has been looking for an “Up or Down” vote on a “Free Trade Agreement” that would save $2 billion while Obama’s complicated approach would cost us about $33,000 per job.
In Schock’s opinion Obama is putting things on the backs of younger people.
If you tie in federal spending with local issues we also find locally that there is spending for such things as riverfront development that does not help the average Peorian that much if at all. However, when you get your water bill you might see taxes that make no sense as well as state taxes. Also, you look around at towns near us who just had a problem even having absentee ballots available. Before making fancy promises I would like to see government take care of basics.
Older people like me need stability and Schock understands that. In fac,t he suggests that people who have been in office get out of touch with constituents. I think that is true. I have at times been in touch with Schock’s office and Press Secretary and have never been left hanging. That is what I want from a politician.
I want to know I matter.
