Not the right representation from Shimkus

December 7, 2013 

I am embarrassed that I am represented by John Shimkus in Congress. He voted to shut down the government and put thousands of people at Scott Air Force Base out of work. He did it just because he does not want kids like my 23-year-old daughter to be on my health care plan. For this, I say he is the worst person in the world.

If I was not a better person, I would wish that his family lost their health care, but I do not wish ill on others. I am glad that he has a gold-plated health care plan for him and his family. I wish he would help everyone else get the same thing.
