“Welcome back. I hope you enjoyed a little break as we were back in our districts.
“I come back to Washington, the cherry blossoms are blooming. Spring has arrived. Hopefully there is a new optimism to help solve problems here in Washington.
“And this week, we have a number of bills on the floor to do just that. If you watch from the American public, they have lost any trust in the IRS. We have a series of bills, the Taxpayers Bill of Rights, from Peter Roskam (IL-06). We have Financial Services bills on the floor as well to protect not only the taxpayer, but actually get the economy moving again. This has been our focus all year. I know we’re in 97 days and we’ll continue to work towards making this country more prosperous and give greater freedom and liberty to all.”
