Last night, you may have seen a story on FOX 55/27 Illinois about University of Illinois Urbana Champaign and University of Illinois Chicago students who came to my DC office for a photo Anna, Scheduling Director for the Illini Democrats, had requested. What the story didn't mention was the students did get their photo and why the students were eventually asked to leave my office. Here is the entire Facebook Live video filmed by the students. I am happy to meet and speak with students but shouting and aggressive behavior is not productive. I also expect more from our journalists. They should tell the whole story and both sides should be represented. Story on Fox Champaign: http://foxillinois.com/news/local/u-of-i-students-confront-congressman-rodney-davis-in-dc

Playing politics with funding the government is not the way to go. Every time there is a threat of a government shutdown by either party, it puts our troops and national security at risk, negatively impacts our markets, and jeopardizes our position as a world leader. I’m confident that both parties will come together once again to avert a government shutdown but crisis appropriating is not the way to govern. That's why I've introduced the End Government Shutdowns Act. This bill removes the threat of a shutdown. I want Congress to get back to our regular appropriations process and stop massive, year-end spending deals where the choice is vote for this bill or shut down the government. Instead of relying on these deals negotiated by just a few members of Congress, we should be passing each appropriation bill to give every member a say as we go line-by-line through our budget to reduce and reprioritize spending.

Proud to see Mark moving from one corner of #IL13 to another. Congrats to the #Illini and this impressive student athlete.
