Gillibrand Holds Town Hall In Troy

Aug 9, 2017

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand stopped by Troy's Hudson Valley Community College late Wednesday afternoon for a Town Hall.

Gillibrand took questions from constituents on issues ranging from health care to North Korea.

"Members of Congress are 20 years behind the rest of America on their best day. So let's tell them that we want Medicare for all, we want a buy-in, and it doesn't matter if you're Democrat or Republican"

"Only Congress has the authority to declare war, but presidents are allowed to respond to, uh,  urgent situations that require an immediate response to protect America."

The Democrat also told the crowd  if President Trump tries to fire Robert Mueller there'll be a constitutional crisis.

The event was the fifth in a series of town halls Gillibrand is hosting around New York State
