Is there -- -- and I'm sure there's -- a lot of other ways to.
You attack that particular problem of -- of Social Security is just look at that what do you think as some on the financial services committee and we start.
Fixing that had we make sure that sustainable.
Well you know first we have to keep our our commitment to seniors and certainly our our budget they came out to Republican house budget.
Does -- in that -- 55 years' time in older Kate can keep the system that they have a week off for programs for younger.
Younger people that that actually put some skin in the game for them that address these issues I think moving forward.
So that my children and grandchildren we'll have an opportunity.
It to have some kind of benefit down the road so.
There's a lot and that must be done a lot that we took a look at in in the budget.
That I think you're gonna as I said talk about a debt spending.
Jobs -- the things that are so important on the minds of people moving forward you know people often -- and people things on their minds they'll talk about how can.
The partisanship in Washington -- can you bridge that divide and how can you bring the two sides together.
What do you think you know I'm a freshman member of the 113.
Congress and and and serving now for about three months.
And eyes weren't for a class of -- We are -- -- wants to bring people together to get things done.
I have the great privilege of that represented my freshman class at the leadership.
Table and that has been marvelous opportunity for me to bring their vision their ideas their expectations to the leadership table.
And and and a two way street kinda fashion so I'm pleased at some of the things we've been able to work together on I look at.
Something like no budget no pay for 85 Democrat said it's time that the US senate after four years past -- a budget puts forward there.
To get things done then I look at something like the skills act which we passed last week.
That it looks at it at some twenty million Americans that are out of work.
-- cut some of -- redundancy in the waste in government agencies and offers job training.
And hope to these twenty million that are out of work.
I think we only had two.
Democrats -- actually cross sea island supported and it's and measure the skills -- the president President Obama has spoken very highly of so.
We've seen a little bit of -- but at the end of the day I do believe our class is about moving forward -- working together.
Let's move back home -- second congressional district what is that you want to achieve for the people that sit here.
You know it's it's about serving for the constituency it's about it's about everything from that to casework that you do helping -- veteran.
Whose son needs needs services helping that family that may -- trying to Hewlett adopt and a child helped that -- woman that's trying gators Social Security.
And cut through the red tape to really you know putting.
Working families back to work and passing policies.
That will allow them to do that so it's multi it's it's it's working with our business to business just it's -- It's a lot if that would there be one 12 and three list of things that you would like to do for the second district -- them like that putting families back to work.
It is number one and I had a heavy emphasis on.
On on fiscal and and and job growth measures -- certainly serving the constituents and families there.
That that that need the services that that need government.
-- advocating on their behalf so it it's that and it's it's me you're working with many years.
And and municipalities.
It's it's if a member of congress if it makes a difference.
For me to show up somewhere and lend my voice to the community whether it's it's trying to entice.
Someone to be an acre business and I in the industry are smaller are -- -- had to do with helping that that veteran those -- the kinds of things.
That that every member of congress should be doing -- in this.
Listening to what people have to say and making sure at the end of the day you're representing and serving their interests.
98 women in the new congress.
78 in the house that it was -- the final number -- does that impact things.
I think it only in a positive fashion.
Women -- we are doers.
By my nature multi tasker is.
I've had -- great privilege in my life and working in business in the private sector.
In politics and public service I've raised.
Three beautiful children lack continue to raise MI don't think it's a task that that ever friends that I think we bring.
A breath and it and it and it inequality to life were willing to sit down.
And and listen to others and workforce solutions so I think it's a positive thing I always feel in this day and -- why it -- still haven't asked that question.
78 that's not really it's not a lot of women and it's a lot comparatively to what it's and we have three new Republican women in freshman class and now I'm pleased to be one of them.
And I had an opportunity -- -- the leadership table to also talk to my colleagues.
And many of them male colleagues about how -- -- We message how we communicate how we talk about how our policies.
And ideas and visions.
Help working families.
I think that's something that we.
We can do we've got to be that that party.
And that messenger that it talks about about individuals and -- emergence on main street -- talks about.
Hardworking families and nurses that -- the teachers the first responders and bring it back.
It to a level that that it reaches people -- all every one is is trying to do more with less.
