Congressman Mike Rogers held a "Congress on Your Corner" town hall meeting in Talladega today, taking questions from constituents and discussing everything from the recent IRS scandals to Obamacare to the state of East Alabama's economy.
"Soon, Congress will consider controversial issues like the future of Obamacare which will have a big impact on our economy and hard working folks in East Alabama," Rogers said after the gathering.
"President Obama has basically admitted his healthcare law is unworkable given all the delays and waivers. Congress should take every opportunity, both big and small, to stop Obamacare."
Rogers says he enjoys hosting these public meetings to give constituents the opportunity to discuss issues important to them directly with their representative.
"Hosting these events gives me the chance to hear first-hand what is on the minds of folks across East Alabama. So many people are concerned with what's going on in Washington these days as they should be, and these public meetings help me take those concerns back to Congress to continue fighting for East Alabama's interests," Rogers said. "I appreciate everyone who took the time to come and express their concerns."
During the day, Rogers also toured DaVita Dialysis, met with Talladega City Manager Brian Muenger and sat for an interview at local radio station WYEA in Sylacauga.
