December 12, 2019 Press Release

Rep. Mike Gallagher (R-WI) today issued the following statement after Speaker Pelosi’s partisan drug pricing proposal, H.R. 3, passed the House on a near party-line vote of 230-192.

As far as politicians go, U.S. Rep. Mike Gallagher is a bit of a nerd.

He'll remind you about Article II of the Constitution, which grants power to Congress that he believes has been hacked away. He wrote his dissertation on President Dwight Eisenhower's Project Solarium, and is now part of a similar commission to look at cybersecurity.

Friends,

As anyone who’s turned on the TV in the last two years surely knows, the healthcare conversation too often devolves into partisan bickering that’s heavy on politically charged rhetoric and light on concrete solutions.

Healthcare is not just the number one issue I hear about from my constituents, it’s one of the most important issues facing our country.
