LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - U.S. Representative Steve Russell made a stop this afternoon at the Lawton-Fort Sill Chamber of Commerce to answer questions from area Oklahomans. The representative from our state's 5th District, which primarily covers Oklahoma City, visited soldiers on Fort Sill earlier in the day. Members of the chamber asked him about healthcare, the federal budget and the federal hiring freeze.

Congressman Russell says as a veteran, he took the chance to visit the Lawton-Fort Sill community to find out the concerns of military communities.

"From people's questions, you can kind of tell what people's concerns are and what's on their mind,” said Rep. Russell. “What you'll find is from community to community, it really doesn't vary. Americans are kind of concerned about the same things. They are concerned about foreign policy right now. They are concerned about health care and that debate.”

Congressman Russell also answered questions about healthcare reform, and said that he believes lawmakers need to take another swing at it before moving on to tax reform.
