United States Senator Bill Cassidy talks with 101.7 / 710 KEEL's Robert J Wright and Erin McCarty about the Senate hearings to confirm Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, legislation to bring down the cost of prescription medication and his memories of the 9/11 attacks.

Cassidy tells KEEL listeners that numerous opponents of the Kavanaugh confirmation are dealing in untruths and many are "purely posturing, saying things that are not true and should be ashamed."

The senior Senator adds that Trump's SCOTUS nominee "is incredibly qualified, both in intellect and as a man of character."

Cassidy is also the moving force to eliminate what is known in medical parlance as "the gag clause." Here's the doctor's explanation from a recent interview with kimatv.com:

Example, when you go to the pharmacist for a prescription, some pharmacists have a contract that forbids them from telling you that it would be cheaper to pay cash than to pay your deductible. Pay cash, get it for $10, pay your deductible, you have to pay $50. They can’t tell you that because of the contract.

Get rid of the Gag Clause, allow the patient the power of information, allowing (the patient) to save the money instead of subsidizing the middle man.
