U.S. Rep. Luke Messer toured the Vehicle Service Group on Friday before returning to Washington D.C.
Messer met with Matt Webster, vice president and general manager to the Americas, and others in VSG management who showcased some of their products and discussed problems facing the company.
"I mostly came to learn and listen. That's what this is about," the first-year congressman said.
Webster and Messer discussed the corporate tax rate. Messer said that he was in favor of broad tax reform. He also said that America's current corporate tax rate "creates enormous disincentive" for corporations to invest and create jobs in the U.S.
Since taking office earlier this year, Messer has visited each of the 19 counties he represents in Indiana's 6th District. He said the two greatest concerns he hears from constituents are over the Second Amendment and spending.
Messer added that cutting spending was a moral obligation we owe to the next generation.
"People are very concerned," Messer said. "We need to stop spending money we don't have."
