I like Peter because he is such a likeable man, and he gets my vote.  He has earned it!

He is a younger man who has made his mark during his two terms as Congressman.

  1. He is experienced: 4 years in the House of Representatives as well as various offices in the State of Illinois.
  2. Recognizing his abilities, his peers have appointed him to be the Deputy Whip of the House, the 4th highest ranking position in Congress.
  3. He serves on the important and powerful House Ways & Means Committee.
  4. He is straightforward about problems facing our nation and meets the needs of the country head-on. For example, he is trying to change Medicaire so as to prevent its bankruptcy in aproximately 10 years, without upsetting the program that is already in place for our seniors.
  5. He has worked with both parties to craft a bill to end $60 billion in Medicaire fraud.

That's why I like Peter Roskam.  It is vitally important that he be reelected to the office of United States Congressman.
