Our area’s newest congressman Lou Barletta has been traveling through part of our region now that it is included in his district.

This morning, those travels brought him to the Geisinger Medical Center where he met first with senior leaders and then toured part of the Hospital for Advanced Medicine, mainly to see the e-ICU program in operation. Barletta told us the new area of his district makes it even more diverse and it is challenging to travel it all, but he says it is important to get to know the issues in each location. We also took the opportunity of his visit to get his take on the republican presidential race. Barletta says the extended race won’t divide the party and that the Pennsylvania primaries later this month are still too close to call. Barletta also told us that he believes the Supreme Court will overturn the president’s healthcare overhaul over the constitutionality of the individual mandates.
