In a recent survey, I asked constituents what they believed the top three issues Congress should be focusing on.  A vast majority of individuals who participated indicated that the national debt and federal spending should be the nation’s top priority.  I want you to know I am taking this seriously.  I voted for Paul Ryan’s budget proposal, which will cut our debt by $6.2 trillion over the next ten years.  This is only the beginning.  See below for the full results of the survey:


Issue Percentage %
National debt and federal spending 29.25%
Illegal immigration and border security 17.05%
Economy and Job Creation 16.84%
Energy Independence and gas prices 14.84%
Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid 10.83%
National Security 8.09%
Other 3.09%
