Congress’s New Entrepreneurs

Meet Bobby Schilling.

He’s been the owner of Giuseppe’s Heavenly Pizza in Moline, Illinois, for the past 14 years.

CNNMoney reports, that in January, he’ll be spending a lot more time in Washington, D.C., as the U.S. representative of the 17th district of Illinois in the 112th Congress.

Schilling’s 21-year-old son is running the pizza shop while his dad ponders his purpose as a public servant.

So far, he hopes to push for laws that will help small-business owners minimize paperwork and tax stress.

His philosophy, not unlike his entrepreneurial peers in Congress, who are mostly Republican, is limited government, less taxes.
