"Last week was one of the most inspiring of my public service career as I participated in four historic town hall meetings across the 2nd Congressional District."

"With gas prices slowly rising, it would seem absurd for Congress to be charging forward with a massive new energy tax. Nevertheless, under an ineffective and high-tax proposal called cap and trade, Democrats are poised to increase the burden on American families and small business. Their cap-and-tax program will raise the price at the pump while increasing your home utility bills and the price of any product that required energy to produce."

"Today marks an unfortunate annual occurrence for taxpayers: "Debt Day." This is the day on the government's fiscal calendar when it has exhausted available tax revenues for that year and begins borrowing and adding to the taxpayer's debt. In other words, it is the day the government starts running up the credit card bill."

"When Americans go to the polls to elect someone to public office, we go into a private booth and fill out a secret ballot. We have that right to make a choice without fear of intimidation or retribution. Imagine one day being told that you no longer had the right to a secret ballot because some powerful interests in Washington had decided to replace it. Now, each individual would be required to publicly declare their candidate of choice to anyone within eyesight or earshot. This would seem outrageous and a clear attack on the fabric of our democratic process. Yet right now there is a bill in Congress that would do the same thing for every worker who is deciding whether or not to form and join a union."

"Americans are facing mounting job losses, depletion in their retirement accounts, and a large number of home foreclosures that sit at the heart of this economic crisis.  No one refutes the seriousness of the situation we face, and few if any have advocated that we simply do nothing.  However, in the name of urgency, decisions were made in Washington without transparency or a complete disclosure of their consequences.  Left unaddressed, the type of borrowing and spending mandated by the $787 billion spending bill could ultimately do more harm than good.  It could spawn a new wave of inflation, higher interest rates, and higher taxes."
