Mark Kirk and Judy Biggert Talk Debt, Government Spending, Health Care, Mortgages and Illinois

The U.S. Republican senator and representative from Illinois spoke at a town hall meeting at Carl Sandburg High School Saturday afternoon.

Rep. Judy Biggert (R-Hinsdale) and Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Illinois) offered their party’s perspective on increasing government debt and ways to curb the spending. The two later fielded questions from concerned residents about abortion, health care reform, subsidies for oil companies, campaign funding and mortgages.

Kirk also explained how Illinois' spending and borrowing habits compare to other states and countries, not in a good way.
