More than fifty people came to listen to Congressman Sean Duffy during his town hall discussion in Merrill today. They wrote questions on cards asking him to address a number of issues from agriculture to the economy and big business.

The Congressman also addressed concerns over birth control -- an issue that's drawn a lot of debate. As you'll remember earlier this month, the president wanted to require religious employers to provide free birth control, but he later changed his mind.

"I have no issue with contraception," said Duffy. "I do have an issue though when you have the federal government telling the Catholic Church who's opposed to contraception that they have to provide it for their employees."

Duffy then headed to Medford for another town hall discussion.
