I share many of the experiences described here by others – for me though the crossroad was when the church changed the definition of a “mortal sin”. With a stroke of the pen all of a sudden it became OK to eat meat on Friday and attending mass on Sat night fulfilled one’s obligation for Sunday. This still doesn’t make sense to me. A MORTAL SIN isn’t something that is open to a definition change – not…

Duh exactly how much are we getting in property taxes now on the lot, zero, zip, nada and that will remain the same if Duesterhaus gets his parking lot. Wasn't Duesterhaus a big supporter of the debacle of hydro power? Unfortunately in this day and age city's have to put up money to get private enterprises to invest in projects. I say let's move forward because the hydro supporters didn't…

AHHH how I envy you – to have such pleasant memories of a World Series. I, being a Cleveland fan, have no such memories although I hope to live long enough, and doing everything in my power to extend my life, to experience this. My efforts include precise instructions to my doctor to NOT pull the plug until Cleveland is victorious. Advances in science may be my best hope.

Why do the liberals continue to tout the Obama Doesn’t Care If It Is Affordable Act as a success. If memory serves me correctly – when this bill was being debated there were supposedly 40 million people without insurance. Now 8 million people have signed up it seems it is time to party. For us old people who have followed baseball for a long time this %age – 20 – is known as the MENDOZA line. Mario…

Schock talks pending bills, Benghazi hearings and Lois Lerner

U.S. Congressman from Illinois Aaron Schock walked with a sea of yellow-shirted supporters through the Dogwood Parade Saturday.

Schock was happy to be in Quincy.

“This is one of Quincy’s biggest events. I’m happy to say that this cycle; I’ve been able to represent all of Adams County. This is a way for me to kick of the 2014 re-election campaign with the first parade right here in Quincy.”

While discussing pending House bills in the Senate, Schock said it’s very frustrating.

“People elected us to solve problems. There’s no perfect legislation. We have two bodies of the legislature for a reason and certainly, if the senate wants to modify our legislation they should do so. But to simply just sit on the bills and to refuse to fix problems facing our country shows a lack of responsibility.”

Schock said there are over 200 pieces of legislation that are waiting to be voted on in the Senate.

“A lot of them affect our area- everything from tax reform to entitlement reform to our budget. If you’re in the agriculture industry, the EPA is tacking on more regulations. For example, regulating farm dust as a pollutant. This goes far beyond the powers of the federal government as they should be based on what our constitution says about states’ rights and individual property rights.”

To learn Schock’s opinion on the upcoming Benghazi hearings, the Mainstreet PAC and Lois Lerner, watch the video posted above.
