I’m proud to continue the New Hampshire tradition of holding public town hall meetings, and this week I heard directly from Granite Staters at six town halls meetings I held throughout the state. Each forum is an opportunity for me to hear directly what's on the minds of constituents, and also to provide an update on what I’m working on in Washington -- including ways to address our nation’s current fiscal crisis. Click here to read more about the issues I discussed.
At nearly every town hall I’ve held, one question that always comes up is: Why can’t Washington balance the budget? New Hampshire families and small business owners perform the most basic task of balancing their budgets, and there's no reason why Congress shouldn't do the same. I’m fighting to reduce spending and pass common sense budget reforms -- including a federal Balanced Budget Amendment that would force Washington to live within its means. With over $17 trillion in debt, it’s time to make the tough but necessary choices to get our nation’s fiscal house in order.
Rest assured I will continue to push for policies that will put our country back on a path to fiscal sustainability.
