Thanks for reaching out. I am honored to be a member of Congress first and foremost because it is an honor to represent my constituents to their government. I am also fortunate to work with amazing people in Congress - both Democrat and Republican. Exactly one year ago, Representative Patrick Murphy (D-FL) and I formed the United Solutions Caucus, a bipartisan coalition of freshmen House members committed to bringing fiscal discipline to Washington. And because I strongly believe we need to return to the concept of a citizen legislature, I do not take a salary as a Member of Congress.
The President made the remark roughly one hour after he unilaterally changed his own health care law - the 23rd time he has done so since July. It speaks to his character.
