Republican Congressman, Jim Gerlach says, the Obama Administration is still bobbing and weaving when it comes to questions about last year’s attack on Benghazi. The 6th Rep. says, It’s been that way since day one.
“It’s pretty darn clear that both the intelligence people and the military people and Department of State people all knew very quickly when this attack occurred that this was not some ginned up protest that went wrong. It was a direct terrorist attack.”
The Administration is now denying reports that some government witnesses have been pressured not to share information with congressional investigators. Gerlach was a guest on Tuesday’s edition of Comment Please By Univest with Darryl Berger.
Most people think of Washington D.C. divided sharply along political lines. But Republican Congressman, Jim Gerlach thinks there is opportunity for some bipartisanship during the months ahead.
“We might see some bipartisanship coming sooner than later on a new farm bill and we may see some cooperation on a up coming transportation bill.”
Gerlach says, Republicans in Congress and the Democratic Administration might be able to find common ground on tax reform.
With the State in need of transportation funding, local State Rep. Marcy Toepel say, she’ll likely support increasing the State’s wholesale gas tax.
“Our transportation and our transportation infrastructure is in need. The roads and brings need attention.”
Toepel was a guest Thursday on WNPV’S Comment Please By Univest.
The head of the John Birch Society, John McManus says the United States is slowly losing its identity, piece by piece to the United Nations. McManus says, he’s not trying to be an isolationist.
“What I am is a non-interventionist, with your son, your daughter and your wallet. If I say it that way, a lot of people will say, oh yeah that’s what I’m for. I don’t want to see my son or my daughter going off to a foreign war somewhere where they’re not even permitted to win.”
McManus says, the U-N is delving out too many orders to the U-S. McManus will be at the Towamencin Township Firehouse Wednesday night at 7:30 to discuss the issue. McManus was a guest this morning on the AM-Edition with Darryl Berger
