"As I said following the president's State of the Union address, our nation faces some serious challenges in the months and years ahead," Crapo said in a news release. "Idahoans want to see Washington work, but they also understand that a change of course is needed to break the federal government's tax-and-spend addiction. Just this week, the Congressional Budget Office reported that debt levels will not only remain at historically high post-World War II levels, but will rise substantially after 2017. Additionally, we recently learned that Obamacare is going to force more than 2 million people from the workforce by 2017, adding further ailment to an already struggling job market. The people of Idaho are frustrated, and I welcome their input and common-sense approaches to these topics."
In addition, the Republican senator will well talk about the recently passed Farm Bill and the flaws and benefits, including deficit-reduction measures.
Crapo will hold another tele-townhall meeting May 14.
