My name is Christopher Batsche, and I am running for US Representative Missouri District 7 in 2018. For too long I have stood by as this great nation of ours is being run into the ground. Our country is on a collision course with disaster! We wonder why things don't change in Washington. Well the first step in changing what goes on there, is to change the people we send there. There's an old saying, "If you always do what you always did, you'll always get what you always got". Once we stop sending the individuals that put our country in the position it's in, the sooner we can change where we're headed! We have a National Debt that is over $18,000,000,000,000 (with no balanced budgets in almost 15 years), a failing education system, a failing healthcare system, government corruption, and a global terror threat. As your Congressman, I'll take on the tough issues and fight for the future of the middle class. Until we address these problems, we can never move forward!! Thank you for your support! God bless you, Missouri, and the United States of America!!
