When I discovered that my home had been placed into the new 6th Congressional District, I was thrilled to also discover Peter Roskam was running to represent my new district in the U.S. House. Rep. Roskam is already an effective leader in Congress, and will continue to promote common-sense solutions to the many challenges our nation faces.  

Rep. Roskam recognizes small businesses are key to economic growth and prosperity. That’s why he is promoting tax policies which create incentives for small business to grow and prosper. Additionally, Rep. Roskam has advocated for a more efficient regulatory structure to ensure a level playing field for small businesses without the burden of uncertainty about new regulations, which has stunted hiring over the past few years.

Additionally, Rep. Roskam recognizes that out-of-control government spending and the enormous federal deficit pose a grave threat to our future. He is ready to work with Republicans and Democrats alike to restore fiscal responsibility to our nation and make the difficult decisions that will allow this country to prosper for the long-term.

Peter Roskam has the experience and knowledge we need to ensure effective solutions in Washington that create jobs, reduce the deficit, and ensure economic growth for our nation. I encourage all voters in the 6th Congressional District to join me in supporting Peter Roskam for U.S. Congress in the upcoming election.

David S. Olsen

Wow! Roskam is going to 'reduce the deficit'? He must be against the Romney tax plan then. Good for him.
