Excerpt

Congresswoman Cheri Bustos (D-IL) hosted the interactive budget workshop in partnership with the Concord Coalition, a nonpartisan and nonprofit group that educates the public about the different causes and consequences of federal budget decisions. Bustos said budget solutions could be reached by people from different political backgrounds in a practical way. “If we can do it here in Galesburg and have civil conversations where we have a lot of different sides of politics in this room....That’s the real world — we have hard decisions to make, but we can do it in a reasonable way.”
