Congressman Mooney reacts to President’s first joint address to Congress

News

President Donald Trump held his first joint address to Congress on Tuesday night.

West Virginia 2nd district republican congressman Alex Mooney said he was impressed with the president’s plans.

Congressman Mooney said one of the first things on the agenda is healthcare reform.

He said politicians have made it clear that if voters elected a president who wanted to repeal the Affordable Care Act, republicans would make it happen. He said changes to our healthcare laws should be happening within the next couple of months.

On top of that, Mooney said he feels optimistic that the president will bring coal jobs back to the Mountain State. 

“Deregulation is a big deal in my state, especially with the war on coal that’s been prosecuted for the last eight years. So getting the EPA under control, getting rid of these regulations, reviving the coal industry, bringing jobs to our state, I’m very optimistic about that,” Rep. Mooney said.
