Indiana Senator Mike Braun holds meet and greet in South Bend
SOUTH BEND, Ind. – On February 19, Indiana Senator Mike Braun held a meet and greet in South Bend where he spoke on many topics, including the spread of the coronavirus and the Democratic primary race.
Regarding growing concerns of the coronavirus, Senator Braun said Indiana should be well-prepared for the deadly disease.
“When you look at the number of cases and the number of deaths. It’s a hard virulent virus so what gives me optimism that we’re going to be prepared for it is it’s especially devastating in areas where you don’t have the USDA, you don’t have the infrastructure that we’ve got to be ahead of it,” Senator Braun said.
Braun also touched on healthcare, saying, “I believe that health care is a right. I don’t think you should go broke because you get sick or have a bad accident and you can do it in the free market system cause I did it 13 years ago.”
The Senator also spoke about the Democratic primary race.
“Someone sooner or later has to rise form that pack and in this case if it’s Bernie sanders and a vowed socialist with the green new deal, Medicare for all, free college tuition, get rid of all college debt and let’s consider eliminating the electoral college. I think that’s a treasure trove to campaign against,” the Senator said.
