Sen. Tina Smith (D-Minnesota) discussed the President’s budget, her trip to southeastern Minnesota and a bill she reintroduced.
Smith said the presidential budget reflects priorates. Smith said the president’s priorities don’t reflect her own or the American people’s.
Smith said it was heartbreaking touring southeastern Minnesota and seeing damage from the constant winter storms. Smith said she talked to farmers that suffered significant losses from collapsed roofs.
Smith reintroduced a bipartisan bill Wednesday to make sure oral cancer drugs are covered in the same way as traditional (IV) chemotherapy to bring down costs for Minnesotans and Americans suffering from cancer.
