To the Editor:
I want to swap representatives.
My congressional representative, Randy Hultgren, voted “no” to end the wasteful government shutdown. According to some reports, roughly $24 billion of taxpayer money was lost during the shutdown, and he wanted to keep it going.
Peter Roskam, also a Republican, voted “yes” to end the shutdown and then called on the president and Democratic members of Congress to work with his party to develop a sensible budget and improve the president’s health care law.
I am tired of my representative paying allegiance to his party’s right-wing extremists, instead of his constituents.
Mr. Roskam, will you be my representative?
