Even in an election year, local Republican U.S. Representative Mike Gallagher believes there is plenty that can be done to fix health care. One of those ideas is a bill addressing price transparency for prescription drugs and other health care practices. He says the bills in the past have stalled in the Republican-held Senate and sometimes ruled out of order in the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives. Gallagher believes establishing price transparency can solve a lot of issues in the health care debate.
Immigration and combating the influence of China are two other issues Gallagher hopes he will be able to address in the New Year.
