    I would hope that the person could use the internets to find out, or the local paper, or the local TV, or use the phone book to find out his office number and inquire there...

    Re: Democrat screams at constituent for asking tough question on health care

    This congressman (using the term loosely) obviously has no respect for the people in the room. If he thought this doctor was a partisan plant and not a constituent his first reply should have been "Could you identify yourself sir." Instead he disrespectfully and snidely tried to skirt the issue like a 3 year old. I believe this statemans and the others at these disorderly town halls get distraught when asked questions they don't know the answer to or just don't want to answer. All of the disorderlyness comes about when they refuse to answer or lie.

    Okay, picture this. Your boss has given you a task and has found out through the grapevine that you may be accomplishing that task in a way that may financially jeopardize the entire enterprise. You are having a coordination meeting and the boss shows up and asks pointed questions about the project to which you respond like this congressman did. How long are you going to be employed?

    The congressman said call my office. The doctor says he did. The congressmans office statement said health care forums were scheduled. The doctor said that the congressmans office said there were to be none. As far as I can tell this doctor is well meaning and honest and just wanted to make his thoughts known, as an expert in the field, to his congressman. He was insulted and met with derision. It is unconsionable. This is not a little sin by a congressman but a hugh sin. He is refusing to represent his constituents and should be fired, impeached or voted out with a lack of confidence vote immediately just as Governor Sanford should be if his constituents think he no longer has their interest at heart.

    I think this lady hit it right on the button with all this town hall crap.
