I’m just a mom. …

As many of you were, and like I was, in the fall of 2008 I was very interested in what was going on at the federal level. If you remember there was that huge debate about the TARP package.

It distressed me that we [had] … big government intervention into our banking system. The banks that made risky choices were having major financial problems because of it.

I did not think it was a good use of our tax dollars. I thought it would burden my children years into the future.

Grosserode graduated from Nebraska Christian College with an Associate's Degree. She transferred to Wayne State College and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.
