WACO -- Congressman Bill Flores had his first town hall meeting in Waco Wednesday night.
His speech focused on the national debt ceiling saying he would only vote to raise it if Democrats agree to big cuts in the budget.
He also spoke out on how much taxpayers' money is being spent, handing out mock voting sheets to see how the people would want him to vote on these issues.
Fox 44 asked Flores with one in six Americans unemployed, if he sees a light at the end of the tunnel in Washington.
"I really do think, my friends in Congress, at least on my side of the isle, understand how grave the situation is, and we have to fix things. We have to fix it quickly," Flores says.
Flores had a full day in Waco, meeting with the Texas Medical Association in Waco on the pros and cons of the new health care bill.
He also went to Baylor to meet with officials there.
The Congressman had his share of security at the meeting, even mentioning what happened in Arizona at Rep. Gifford's event.
Now, he heads to College Station for more town hall meetings.
