We in Lawrence County applaud Altmire

Written by Rosa Colucci on .

We are writing to express our most sincere appreciation to U.S. Rep. Jason Altmire for his courageous vote on behalf of Lawrence County and the majority of his constituents.

In the face of unimaginable pressure, Rep. Altmire stood firm for his district and voted against a health care reform bill that passes off some of its costs to the already overstrapped states and includes sizable cuts in Medicare, the insurance program for a large portion of Lawrence County's residents.

Rep. Altmire has never let partisanship come ahead of what is best for his district, and we in Lawrence County again thank him for standing up for us.
