According to the Congressman's official website: "As the Sixth District's representative, Bob has worked diligently to protect the freedoms and civil liberties enshrined in the United States Constitution, including private property and Second Amendment rights. He is also focused on securing our borders through immigration reform, creating a pro-growth, pro-jobs economy, increasing access to health care, simplifying the federal tax code, ensuring veterans receive the care they deserve, and lessening the regulatory burden on the American people. Additionally, one of Bob's top legislative initiatives is his constitutional amendment to require a balanced federal budget so that Congress will be forced to control spending."
