“Business as usual” in Washington doesn’t help Wisconsin families. One of Sean’s first actions in Congress was to introduce the ban on wasteful earmarks. He led the effort to freeze congressional pay, cut congressional budgets by more than 10 percent, and eliminate wasteful government spending. His legislation, the RESTRICT Act, led to a law that finally outlawed insider trading practices among government officials and employees. Sean’s been focused legislatively since day one on creating new jobs, growing the economy by eliminating onerous Washington red-tape on small businesses, protecting Medicare, and reducing the nation’s long-term debts and deficits.
