The downtown Binghamton office of Congressman Richard Hanna remains closed as because of the federal government shutdown.

Lights were out and a phone could be heard ringing from inside the office at the Metrocenter Wednesday afternoon. The congressman’s Utica office also is closed.

Speaking on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program from Washington, Hanna said much of what happened leading up to the partial shutdown was “predictable.” He said: “It is a real shame.”

The congressman said it’s a “false premise to say that you can hold the government hostage” to change the Affordable Care Act. He said there are other ways to address issues with the program.

Hanna said “millions of people” are being inconvenienced by the shutdown in a maneuver that won’t really save money.

The congressman said while his district offices are closed, constituents may still contact his Washington office. Calls to the local offices are being forwarded to Washington.
