U.S. Rep. Sanford Bishop says he understands the frustration many Americans feel toward Congress these days.
Bishop, D-Ga., was in Macon on Tuesday getting reacquainted with Bibb County voters, with much of the county moving back into the 2nd Congressional District after 16 years.
Bishop said the No. 1 thing he hears from voters is that theyre fed up with Congress inability to get major legislation passed because of partisan politics. As a Blue Dog Democrat, Bishop said hes a fiscal conservative who has been willing to reach across the aisle and work with like-minded Republicans on issues.
He noted that he stood in unison with Republican Sens. Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss, as well as with U.S. Rep. Austin Scott, R-Ga., agreeing that the sequestration measure thats part of the Budget Control
