Labrador: 1st 100 Days ‘Eye Opening’

Thursday marks the 100th day of Republican Raul Labrador’s freshman term in Congress. The representative from Idaho’s 1st Congressional District said this week the country’s “spending crisis” is its most important challenge. And while he said his “heart goes out” to the 522 people who will lose their jobs at a Nampa meat packing plant in June, he said it is not the role of government to create jobs. He said government can help create a climate for new jobs by actions such as eliminating the national deficit. Labrador called the challenges facing the country “eye-opening”/Mike Butts, Idaho Press-Tribune. More here. (Idaho Press Tribune file photo)

Question (for those who voted for Raul Labrador): Are you satisfied with Congressman Labrador's performance in his first 100 days in office?
