(CHICAGO) An Illinois congressman expects it to be a busy time in Congress during President-elect Donald Trump’s first 100 days.
U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam (R-Wheaton) tells Big John and Ray on WLS that he believes the House will look at a lot of things, from reforming the tax code, to repealing and replacing Obamacare to repealing a number of regulations.
“You’re going to see some cheering on the sidelines from Capitol Hill, but it’s going to be largely work done by the administration…and that is getting rid of a number of these regulations that are just pressing down on people and are perceived as too onerous and too draconian and just too political.”
Asked about the many Hillary Clinton supporters calling on a reform or a complete scrapping of the Electoral College, Roskam doesn’t see that happening.
Former Obama Senior Advisor David Axelrod agrees.
“I don’t think the Electoral College is going away,” Axelrod told CNN. The Electoral College “was created to keep large states from overwhelming small states and that’s still the case.”
U.S. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) filed a long shot bill Tuesday to abolish the Electoral College.
