WITF reports on the opioid crisis in PA-12:

“I’m a lawyer, and when I see injustice, when I see people being left behind, when I see friends of mine being lied to directly by the congressman–where he had made statements about, ‘I’ll make sure that your Medicaid isn’t cut’ and then voted to cut it, which would be devastating–that’s something I step forward for,” he said.

Friedenberg also supports universal health care but said his strength is in technology.

He said he wants to increase reliable internet access to rural areas like the 12th district.

“That’s a big project, but we can do it. And it will give us enormous returns both in the short-term, and then we’ve got the foundation for the next generation of jobs,” he said.
