What compels you to jump into the political arena and what has surprised you about Washington which it.
Well the final straw for me you was -- when the pass health care bill.
I've argued is pretty.
Major assault on our freedoms.
My own the reason is really -- -- my heart.
It is our first child and -- -- -- borders here's Jim -- -- her aorta and homeowners are we were switch chipper.
So the age of eight months from her heart was -- -- Incredibly skilled and dedicated medical profession -- professionals reconstructing temperature and heart.
She's three years old and our heart is backwards.
But she's -- yourself in the unit intensive care unit and you back back in the 20091.
They're trying to passes health care bill and President Obama came out.
Prepare for his recent you know these doctors -- take out of that -- for a few extra bucks.
I thought it was -- line and when the pass health care bill and I I'm highly concerned about what's gonna do to the quality of care.
I think it will result in rationing.
Quality care and the -- medical issue.
Let's say my daughter's life receives millions of other lives I think we'll come -- -- grinding halt under government run health care system so.
That was the the primary.
Impetus for me to consider running.
Since you got here there was discuss a little bit in the beginning but it does it like it's taking a -- backseat here's another.
Does that frustrate you you feel like we need to address some of these other issues person.
When it comes to things like that debt ceiling is ongoing debates you feel like.
Congress is making any progress or he'd still like it once I -- after room.
The senate certainly is making no progress I've been here for six months and we really haven't passed anything.

-- After -- impact insurance deadlock after another.
-- as -- get anything done.
It shouldn't be this hard.
Mean families do it every day businesses do this every day set their budget.
So this is how much we can afford to spend.
And it shouldn't be -- hard for congress to say this is the dollar amount.
And over ten years this is the amount -- which is set in terms of spending caps now prioritizing spending underneath those caps.
A second easy.
That's where the political.
Processor -- -- itself out.
But used establish the hard spending caps to see if if we if we only spend this in relation to our economy.
