As a member of Congress you can’t just think about two-year periods or even just your own twenty years in the House (oh, yeah, we’ll be okay while I’m still in office and that’s all that matters…). You also need to legislate for a sustainable future. So where is your action on that front? When will you begin supporting bills that truly address our deeply serious federal financial situation, Rep. Woolsey?
