At the Select Committee on the Chinese Communist Party’s hearing on the role of the CCP in the fentanyl crisis, this week, Third District Representative Jim Banks shared stories of Hoosiers who lost their lives to fentanyl poisoning.

Banks held up photos of Logan Bauer, 20, and Christopher Juillerat, 23, along with more than 100 obituaries, photos, and letters from parents who have lost children to fentanyl poisoning.

Banks recognized the work being done by Logan’s father Chad, a captain with the Fort Wayne Fire Department, and Chris’s mother Theresa to educate communities in Northeast Indiana about the dangers of fentanyl.

“Last year, I received a box of a hundred letters and photos and obituaries from parents, like many of you who are here today, who lost children to fentanyl poisonings. I’ve repeatedly asked the Biden administration, and President Biden himself to meet with these families, to give them an audience in his office to talk about these issues, and I’ve been completely blown off by the Biden administration when requesting – simply requesting – a meeting between the President of the United States and families like all of you who are with us today to talk about what this committee is addressing.”

Banks says President Biden has repeatedly ignored Rep. Banks’ request for a meeting about Hoosier victims of the fentanyl crisis.

When you are downing meds from the corner pharmacy stuff is going to happen. Don’t do illegal drugs then you don’t die from illegal drugs.

I have no sympathy here.
