I have known Cheri Bustos for 20-plus years. She is always professional and friendly. I participated in an exercise she hosted @ WIU with a large group of disparate individuals who were assigned to small groups and attempted to "balance the budget."|
It was an enlightening experience. None came within $300 billion. This proved that this or any Congress has to work together to accomplish anything which sadly is not the case with the current Congress. Cheri does just that, she works across the aisle to solve problems.
I am a USMC Vietnam veteran who attended a veterans forum in Rock Island which came at the behest of Bustos and was very informative.
Veterans issues were addressed and we were advised to further expound on our claims and issues. Two higher up VA officials were in attendance and answered a myriad of questions. Cheri was there to listen and ensure local VA facilities were providing adequate care.
Bobby Schilling has the wrong priorities, he once again will align himself with the tea party and given a majority in the House and possibly the Senate, President Obama could be impeached which is ridiculous considering that this Congress has accomplished nil, except for the recent attempt to "fix" the broken VA system.
If I wanted to receive a long lost medal which is in my service record, l would go to Schilling. If I want to get something substantial, like budget or real veteran issues resolved, or have a meaningful discussion on immigration reform, I choose Cheri Bustos.
