Rodney Davis said ( about Peter Roskam ) : “Student loan debt is now the second largest form of consumer debt with the average person owing $32,000 in student loan debt,” “Not only do we need to work on the back end to help deal with student loan debt, but we need to do more to control the cost of college on the front end and ensure students know exactly what they will owe. More transparency will allow students to plan and hopefully prevent more students from taking out more in loans than is needed. Former Congressman Peter Roskam championed this when he was a state senator in Illinois and I’m proud that my home state already requires this important level of transparency” External link

His dedication to Illinois College and the entire Jacksonville community was immeasurable. Paul’s work to further agriculture, his love for Abraham Lincoln, and willingness to stand up for what he believed in are just some of the qualities I admired most about Paul. Paul’s service and positive impact on Illinois politics will be long lasting. My thoughts and prayers are with his children and family as they mourn this great loss” External link

Rodney Davis said : “What we have to get to the point of is in this country, federal firearms dealers have to provide a background check for anybody who’s purchasing a gun. You cannot go online and purchase a firearm without having that gun shipped through a federal firearms licensee, and they will run a background check,” “Now, what many Democrats call the ‘gun show loophole’ is actually a loophole that allows private sales. Now, to fix that they would require — it would require a full gun registry. If I were to sell a 12-gauge shotgun to my nephew, that wouldn’t be registered through a federal firearms licensee. It would take a full gun registry” External link
