WASHINGTON D.C. — A key New Jersey Republican congressman says he is "not sold" on Republicans' proposed health care plan and has concerns about President Trump's budget.

During a "telephone town hall" on Monday, 11th district Congressman Rodney Frelinghuysen said he doesn't think cuts to the National Endowments for the Arts will get any support from Congress, and that he considers the NEA "money well spent," according to NorthJersey.com,

Frelinghuysen also told the meeting that he is "not sold" on the plan being put forth by Congress to replace Obamacare but said that it is being changed and adjusted before taking a final form that could be voted on this week, according to the report.

Frelinghuysen is chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, a powerful committee that regulates and decides how the government will spend money.

Morristown Greeen also reported that Frelinghuysen said he doesn't believe Trump Tower was wiretapped by Barack Obama and that Trump should release his tax returns but should not forced.
