AUGUSTA, Ga.---This area's Congressmen were up and at 'em early this morning at the Metro Chamber of Commerce Breakfast.
11-day Congressman Paul Broun (R-10) joined two-term Congressman John Barrow (D-12) at this morning's breakfast.
Both men talked about the importance of providing health care insurance for more Americans, making America more business-friendly, and homeland security.
One area where they agree: expanding Augusta's capacity to care for the wounded warrior.
"We have the capacity to treat a lot of soldiers that are simply overtaxing the the facilities to deal with the steady demand over the years," Rep. Barrow said.
"Something I'm very eager to do is to expand capabilities at Fort Gordon, especially Eisenhower," Rep. Broun. "As a medical doctor I know how important it is to all our active duty and to all our wounded warriors... we've got to take care of them."
