Congressman Anthony Brindisi was in McGraw today for his latest town hall in the 22nd district.
Brindisi talked with and took questions from seniors at the McGraw Community Building.
One of the topics was prescription drug costs.
Brindisi says he’s co-sponsoring legislation to lower drug costs.
He says a couple of ways costs could be lowered is by making it easier for generic drugs to get to market and allowing Medicare to negotiate with the drug companies.
On the potential move to the impeachment of President Trump following the release of the Mueller report, Brindisi said there needs to be more attention on the issues facing people every day.
Brindisi says “I’m not in favor of impeachment. I think you have to let investigations play out, there should be hearings. We also have to focus on the issues that people want to talk about in this community. Like drug costs like health care, like infrastructure, these are the kind of things I hear about at town hall meetings. And those are the issues we should be focusing on down in Washington.”
When talking about Spectrum’s new deal to stay in New York Brindisi says he will be watching them like a hawk and is pushing for more oversight on cable companies.
The congressman will be holding another Townhall tomorrow night at the Stanford J Gibson primary school in Norwich at 6.
