Congressman Diane Black ? 83.9% of you believe that our country today is on the wrong track
As your Member of Congress, I am committed to listening to your concerns and taking your voice to Washington. To that end, I sent out my 2016 Official U.S. Government Survey earlier this year. We received an overwhelming response – more than 14,000 of you took the time to share your thoughts with me! Thank you to everyone who responded; your answers help me focus on the issues that are most important to you and your family.
My staff and I have spent the last few months reading your responses and tallying the results. I wanted to share a few of the highlights with you below. You can also see a presentation of the results HERE.
- 83.9% of you believe that our country today is on the wrong track, while 11.3% of you said that our country was on the right track.
- 76.5% of you disapprove of the job that President Obama is doing as President, while 22.6% of you said that you approve of his job performance.
- 59% of you said that your healthcare costs have increased under Obamacare, while 4.5% of you said that your costs have decreased.
- 56.8% of you oppose executive action on gun control, while 43.1% of you support such measures.
- 77% of you believe that taxpayer dollars should never be used to pay for abortions, while 23% of you said that abortion providers deserve federal support.

I’m encouraged to know that we share so many of the same values. I always appreciate your input and I hope you will continue to keep in touch with my office. Serving you is my top priority!
Member of Congress
P.S. For the 83% of you who, like me, believe that our nation is on the wrong track – I hope you’ll check out House Republicans’ “Better Way” initiative, where we’ve laid out real, conservative plans for protecting our national security, jumpstarting our economy, replacing Obamacare, and more. You can see it all right HERE.
