Infrastructure, Defense Against ISIS Discussed as Neighboring Chambers Host Sen. Bob Casey
Infrastructure and defense against ISIS were among the subjects discussed by Senator Bob Casey at a recent event hosted by the Downingtown-Thorndale Regional Chamber of Commerce and Exton Region Chamber of Commerce, writes Ginger Dunbar for the Daily Local News.
Talking to chamber members and their guests at the Downingtown Country Club, Sen. Casey said that during his travels last week, he saw the challenges rural areas are facing on a daily basis.
He also said he opposes the repeal of the Affordable Care Act, which prompted applause from the audience. He then emphasized that elected officials should agree on a compromise regarding what is working in the current system and work together to fix what is not.
“This is a particularly difficult time for the country,” Casey said. “Our country is divided in a lot of ways; that’s plainly evident.”
In terms of national security, Casey said that President Trump should listen carefully to military experts on potential conflicts. He also expressed hope that the executive branch and Congress can work together on issues of infrastructure. He added that in Chester County alone there are 156 structurally insufficient bridges.
