Congressman Frank Pallone, Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, has embraced the Green New Deal promoted by freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Pallone’s “100% clean economy” with net-zero carbon emissions is “aggressively” targeted to be achieved by 2050, twenty years following the end of AOC’s world.
With a nod to The Squad, Pallone and six other Democrats on his committee held a press conference in Washington on Tuesday in an effort to convince the world that 2050 is the point of no return from climate change, not 2030, as AOC insists.

Proposed Rebate Rule Hands a Hefty Payday to Big Pharma Paid for by Patients AND Taxpayers
By Rich Pezzullo
There is full -fledged crisis that is not on the border – it’s in our families and can no longer be ignored. One in four Americans cannot afford their medication.
There is a controversial initiative being pushed in Washington called the Rebate Rule, which affects the ability of pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) such as Express Scripts, CVS Caremark and OptumRx to negotiate rebates with drug makers for Medicare recipients. We need leaders from both political parties- including Congressman Frank Pallone, to come out and take a more vocal, stronger stand against this.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections, Frank Pallone, Health Care, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, News | Tags: CD 6, Congressman Frank Pallone, Monmouth County News, New Jersey, NJ-6, Opinion, Rebate Rule, Rich Pezzullo | 2 Comments »
Congressman Frank Pallone yesterday voted against legislation that recognizes that allowing illegal immigrants to the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.

Rich Pezzullo, the Republican businessman seeking to unseat Congressman Frank Pallone in November, today applauded President Donald Trump for signing the Right to Try Act into law. The new law grants terminally ill patients the right to choose alternative treatment options when they have exhausted all fully FDA-approved treatment options.
President Trump signed the bill this afternoon.
“This is a victory for everyone in America who is struggling with a terminal illness, their families, and their loved ones,” said Pezzullo. “This is a victory for hope.”
Pezzullo said he was “incensed” by Pallone’s vocal opposition to the bill.Art Gallagher | Filed under: 2018 Elections, Frank Pallone, Monmouth County News | Tags: Congressman Frank Pallone, Monmouth County News, President Donald Trump, Rich Pezzullo, Right to try, Right to Try Act | Comments Off on Pezzullo praises Trump for signing “Right to Try” into law; Rips Pallone for his opposition

I was surprised to learn this morning that Congressman Frank Pallone held a Town Hall in Long Branch last week.
From the size of the crowd, which you can see in the video below, one could conclude that is was a very poorly publicized event, which is a shame. I would have gladly publicized it, free of charge. It doesn’t take “so many citizens” to be inspired, I guess.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Congress, Frank Pallone, Monmouth County News | Tags: 2018 elections, Congressman Frank Pallone, equal rights for topless women, Monmouth County News, Pallone Town Hall, Women's right to choose to be topless | 1 Comment »
