Script

  

Cheri VO: My husband Gerry is a cop.

Starting out, we worked opposite shifts to feed our boys.

Like a lot of families, we’ve seen good times, and tough times.

We’d sit around the table and tighten our belt when needed.

Washington should too.

That’s why I pushed to cut government waste. So we can protect Social Security, Medicare and our veterans.

I’m Cheri Bustos and I approve this message because Washington could use some Midwestern common sense.
