A conference call with Congressman Tom Reed (R-Corning, NY 23) and regional media representatives. Held Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 21, 2017. The congressman discusses his meeting with President Trump last week, meeting with a group of constituents who had staged a sit-in at his Ithaca office, immigration, and his appointment to the healthcare subcommittee of the House Ways and Means Committee and what it means to the effort to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
Note: The conference call experienced technical issues during the congressman’s opening statements and the conference was stopped and then restarted. We’ve edited the audio and comments from the Congressman during that portion to exclude the technical issues and rejoining of the participants and resumed at a point where he reiterated his earlier statements, prior to the technical problems.
