US Senator John Barrasso spoke at a luncheon in Buffalo Monday, touching on a number of subjects before opening his time to answer questions from those assembled.

The Senator spoke about Washington seemingly being “broken” and how they could learn from how things are done in Wyoming, referring to the state's mandated balanced budget and the state's spirit of “get the job done.”

Barrasso spoke briefly about the President's jobs bill and compared it to the Western Caucus' Jobs Frontier Report, saying the Presidents promises over the last three years have created more problems than solutions. The Jobs Frontier Report gives alternatives to those policies.

Questions from the audience ranged from the Health Care Bill, where it currently stands and where he thought it may end up to possible appointments by President Obama to the Supreme Court and to his thoughts on drug testing for unemployment and other benefits.

After the luncheon the Senator held an impromptu press conference with local media and answered a number of more in-depth questions.

The Senator was asked by Sheridan Media's Kim Love about the current state of the US economy.

More of the press conference will be aired next week on Public Pulse with Kim Love.
