Congressman Liz Cheney (R-Wyoming) appeared live on Good Morning Wyoming. She discussed the events in Charlottesville saying there is "no place in our political dialogue for the kind of vile, white-supremacist, Neo-Nazi sentiment."

Rep. Cheney addressed new threats from North Korea, saying she is pushing for increased spending on U.S. missile defense systems. 

On healthcare, Cheney says Congress needs to pass the bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, but doesn't support President Donald Trump's plan to let Obamacare fail. 

Rep. Cheney disagrees with West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice's plea for $4.5 billion dollars in federal subsidies for electricity companies to buy Appalachian coal. She says this will negatively impact Wyoming's coal industry, and we can't have a system "where suddenly our coal is disadvantaged."
