There are some new kids on the block in Congress who are tired of the gridlock that prevents things getting done. On May 24, come meet U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy and U.S. Rep. David Joyce, who will be replacing U.S. Rep. Robert Pittenger, who bowed out because of a scheduling conflict. Murphy and Joyce are part of a bipartisan group of House freshmen bent on finding some common ground across party lines. Just this week, the two of them filed a bipartisan bill called The Savings Accountability, Value, Efficiency Act (SAVE) which would cut up to $200 billion in government spending by eliminating duplication and increasing efficiency. They will elaborate on the bill when they address the Forum Club.
