Hultgren Sends Weekly Report

Saturday Congressman Randy Hultgren talked to Bishop Thomas Doran (on the left) and another pirest whose name I do not know.

An email from Congressman Randy Hultgren:

Last week we learned that the United States’ credit rating is at risk of a downgrade by another ratings agency before the end of 2011. This is a stark reminder of the consequences of the Senate’s failure to pass the Cut, Cap and Balance Act approved by the House in July. I believed then – and still believe now – that the commonsense Cut, Cap and Balance Act was the only way to preserve our nation’s sterling credit rating.

If you agree with me and would like to have your opinion heard on a Balanced Budget Amendment, visit America Speaking Out.

The biggest news out of the Capitol last week was a huge victory for job creators as the House came together in a strong, bipartisan manner to repeal the onerous 3 percent withholding tax, which was yet another job-crushing burden aimed at the business community.

Much like the costly ‘1099 requirement’ that we repealed earlier this year, the 3 percent withholding rule would have imposed substantial new burdens on already cash-strapped employers, hindering cash flows, and further obstructing job creation. President Obama has already indicated that he will sign this legislation, so I urge the Senate to act quickly.

I was saddened to hear of the passing of a friend and former colleague this week, State Senator Wendell Jones. My thoughts and prayers go out to his wife and family during this difficult time.

Hultgren Sends Weekly Report — 2 Comments

  1. Hultrgren appears to be taking a page from “The God Father!”

    Meanwhile, Michael (Randy Hultgren) busies himself with the biggest deal of his career:

    He has recently bought up enough stock in International Immobiliare, an international real estate holding company known as “the world’s biggest landlord”, to become its largest single shareholder, with six seats on the company’s 13-member board of directors.

    He now makes a tender offer to buy the Vatican’s 25% interest in the company, which will give him controlling interest.

    Knowing that Archbishop Gilday, who serves as head of the Vatican Bank, has run up a massive deficit, he negotiates a deal to pay $600 million to the Bank in exchange for the shares.

    The deal is quickly approved by Immobiliare’s board.

    However, per the Lateran Treaty, it must be ratified in Rome by Pope Paul VI himself, and His Holiness is gravely ill.

    Without his word, the deal is in limbo.”

    Meanwhile, Congressman Joe Walsh is busy writing his own script? Can’t wait to see it!!

    Perhpas…….One of these men will make us “An Offer We Can’t Refuse?”

  2. Randy,

    I appreciate the opportunity to join you on “America Speaking Out” if I agree with you.

    But you don’t tell me where to go if I disagree with you.

    Don’t constituents who disagree with you get an equal opportunity and invitation to do so?

    I do have faith in you. I’m sure, after you read this, you’ll be happy to tell us where to go.
