Congress recently has been on summer recess. When Congress is on recess, most congressmen go back to their districts and hold town hall meetings -- at least the congressmen that want to interact or hear from their constituents.
Our congressman (Pete Visclosky) is not interested in informing the public of what is going on in Washington. We have major issues that will impact us personally and affect our wallets, making it more financially difficult for families to make ends meet.
Two major issues that will affect us -- the defunding of Obamacare and immigration reform -- are both issues that Rep. Visclosky will not fight against. In October, Congress will vote on the continuing resolution with an opportunity to defund Obamacare. We have immigration laws on the books, but the new proposed bill will lower wages even more if it is passed. By supporting both of these issues, Visclosky is hitting your wallet. What will you do about it?
