Congressman Randy Hultgren sums up his week below:
Last week the the US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the economy had only added 80,000 jobs in October. While this is a small step in the right direction, it’s simply not enough and underlines the need for the Senate to take immediate action on the twenty-two jobs bills that the House has sent them.
It’s clear that after thirty-three months of unemployment at or above eight percent, the private sector isn’t looking for more big-government “stimulus” spending. Instead what the private sector needs is what House Republicans are working hard to create – a pro-growth, pro-jobs economic environment, with low taxes, reasonable regulations, and certainty that Washington bureaucrats will not punish them for their hard work.

On Friday, November 11, our Nation will come together to honor our veterans and commemorate their service and sacrifice to defend our freedoms. To view a list of just some of the area activies on Veterans Day, click here.
Also, please remember that my offices in Washington and Geneva are currently accepting applications for spring semester internships. The positions will run from January to May, 2012. To find out more about the internships and how to submit an application, click here.
As always, it is truly an honor to serve you in Washington. Please contact me at 630.232.7104 or 202.225.2976 if I can be of assistance, or if you’d like to share your thoughts on the issues before Congress.
