Kudos to Hultgren

To the Editor:

Thanks to U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren for voting to hold the government responsible for ever-increasing the nation’s borrowing limit.

Thanks to the Northwest Herald for putting the story of Hultgren’s courageous and necessary vote against raising the debt limit on the front page.

Too bad the other 18 unnamed Illinois delegates were not as wise and courageous.

Hultgren also was instrumental in sponsoring a seminar on “Common Core,” where a panel presented the pros and cons of yet another terrible attack on our children’s education.

Wise, informed parents and committed statesmen such as Rep. Hultgren are the bulwark of our country.
