With Congress in recess, US lawmakers are returning to their districts to meet with constituents. Congresswoman Cheri Bustos and Congressman Darin LaHood discussed a wide range topics at a legislative break on a panel attended by adults 50 and older Thurs.
The event was sponsored by AARP Illinois and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Bradley, or OLLI.
One of the first topics posed to the representatives was about social security. Lahood, a Republican, says programs like Medicare and Medicaid need to be revised, given the country’s growing deficit.
