Molinaro says he is in favor of access to Mifepristone
Jammel Cutler reports for Columbia-Greene Media that Rep. Marc Molinaro spoke in front of a local conservative audience at the 60th annual Lincoln Award Dinner at Kozel’s Restaurant in Ghent on March 16. Molinaro was asked about a Texas court possibly blocking access to Mifepristone, an abortion drug, and he said, “I supported accessing contraception as a member of the state Assembly.... I voted to have that drug approved for over-the-counter use and, so, from my perspective, we certainly want to ensure that women and families have access to both the contraception and care that they desperately want.” In an interview with the newspaper, Molinaro also said he has no interest in increasing the tax rate on the wealthy, who pay a historically low share of taxes. Molinaro said, "I don’t think America and the federal government have a revenue problem. They have a spending problem.... While there are so many that want us to confront the issues of America financial conditions, first by talking about taxes, I’d like us to talk about responsibility for taxpayers’ money and not taking it from taxpayers to begin with." Molinaro represents the 19th Congressional District. Read more about this story at HudsonValley360.com.
