VIDEOS: Mark Kirk and Judy Biggert Talk Debt, Government Spending, Health Care, Mortgages and Illinois

The U.S. Republican senator and representative from Illinois spoke at a town hall meeting at Carl Sandburg High School Saturday afternoon.

Rep. Judy Biggert (R-Hinsdale) and Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Illinois) offered their party’s perspective on increasing government debt and ways to curb the spending. The two later fielded questions from concerned residents about abortion, health care reform, subsidies for oil companies, campaign funding and mortgages.

Kirk also explained how Illinois' spending and borrowing habits compare to other states and countries, not in a good way.

Only in this great country will you find the elected visiting your town to be held accountable and being told citizens concerns and ideas along with support for national matters. This was very timely considering all the crisis we are currently engaged in. I looked for Bobby Rush at this event but I couldn't find him. Apparently, he was busy in happyland where everything is always perfect.
