However, it's also important to stay in touch with media outlets.
Bucshon is spending the week in the district meeting with various media outlets to discuss several issues.
"We're all around all the time," Bucshon stressed.
On Monday, he paid a visit to The Brazil Times to discuss many issues, including the ongoing budget problems the United States is facing.
During the weekend, Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) stated he was ready to discuss possibly raising the nation's debt ceiling with the Obama Administration.
The debt ceiling is the total cap of money borrowed through Treasury issuances of debt to domestic and foreign entities. It is in the form of bonds.
Currently, the debt ceiling is at $14.3 trillion. It was last raised in February 2010. Another vote on the debt ceiling is expected sometime in the near future.
"I haven't talked to him since he said that," Bucshon said. "But we have to get the budget issue solved for the American people.
"Obviously, there are different points of view on this."
Bucshon said -- in his opinion -- it's a simple case of over-spending, and for quite some time.
"Spending has been a problem for decades," he said. "It's been both parties for decades."
Bucshon said he believes government has not been able to control spending for several years, bringing the nation to the current conundrum it faces.
"The gist is, nobody wants to raise the debt ceiling without spending being controlled," Bucshon said. "Government has not been able to control its spending."
For example, Bucshon said statistics he has seen show the government has increased spending by more than 20 percent in the past two years alone.
Bucshon said he is a House co-sponsor of balanced budget amendment, which he hopes could be added to the United States Constitution.
"We need to curtail spending in the short term, across the board," he said. "Then, in the short and middle term, we need changes in entitlement programs (Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security).
"I think at some point, you may have to put a cap on spending. There are going to be differences, but it has to be done."
Bucshon said not only a spending problem has to be controlled. But the amount of revenue coming in must be used wisely.
"Revenue is the biggest issue," he said. "More revenue comes in and politicians spend it. It's not used right.
"In the 90s, the economy was doing great. But right now, we're in the middle of a recession and unemployment is high. There are philosophical differences, but I think the tide has turned a little bit."
Bucshon said one way to control spending, unfortunately, would be cutting some programs.
"You would not believe the duplication of programs in the federal government," he said, suggesting some of them could be "consolidated."
"We want to make government efficient and run more effectively," Bucshon said. "We need to look at every aspect of government and that's what we're trying to do."
Since he took office, Bucshon said constituents have contacted him mainly to discuss the debt ceiling issue, along with entitlement spending and the status of the nation's current unemployment rate.
"People are nervous," he said. "With the high unemployment rate, international issues and budget issues, that's the general mood. We need a re-set in the bar of what the role of federal government is."
Bucshon added he is honored to represent Indiana's Eighth District.
"I'm enjoying it," he said. "I'm getting to meet a lot of people. It's an honor to be here. I'm trying to make a difference on a national scale."
