Wisconsin Republican Representative Mike Gallagher says the country needs to move forward after the United States Senate voted to acquit President Donald Trump on both impeachment articles earlier this week. Gallagher voted against the two articles of impeachment that were approved by the U.S. House of Representatives late last year. U.S. Senators Tammy Baldwin and Ron Johnson stuck to their party lines when it came to their vote on Wednesday. Gallagher fears the process lowered the bar for future impeachment proceedings, saying there were no underlying crimes and were almost completely partisan. For him, moving forward starts with addressing trust issues in Washington D.C.
Gallagher says there are some things Congress can cover in the short time they will be on Capitol Hill this year due to the election. Those include lowering prescription drug prices and creating healthcare pricing transparency.
