The implementation of a new voting calendar in the U.S. House of Representatives allows me to travel throughout the Second Congressional District every third week. My staff and I are taking full advantage of this opportunity. We have held nearly fifty meetings and events throughout the district in the first two workweeks, and each has provided me valuable time with my constituents to listen, discuss issues, and share thoughts and concerns.

Last November, the American people sent a very clear message: our current course of more spending and more debt is unsustainable.

Last week, I proudly voted in support of H.R. 2 to repeal the Healthcare Reform Act. The House of Representatives successfully passed the bill by a vote of 245-189. Throughout the district, my constituents have repeatedly told me that the health care reform bill—2,000 pages of costly and burdensome regulations—is limiting economic growth and preventing the creation of new jobs.

Our country has strong economic momentum building. I will do everything I can to ensure that we capitalize on these historic opportunities and not squander them.
