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:
|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%|
