If you live in the Texas 25th district, you need to contact Rep. Lloyd Dogget.
201 Cannon House Office Bldg • Independence and 1st St, SE • Washington DC 20515 • Phone: 202-225-4865
300 East 8th St. #763 • Federal Building • Austin, TX 78701 • Phone: 512-916-5921 • 1-866-916-5921
On August 3rd Rep. Lloyd Dogget (D-TX-25) was on Hardball and said:
Many of these people were summoned in by the local Libertarian and Republican parties, they don’t even live in the neighborhood…a desperation tactic.
A mob scene (the protests) are just one way to intimidate members into weakening their position
In my case it just reaffirmed my resolve to go back (to DC) to get a strong public plan, force more competition…and get the reform my constituents want.
Rep. Dogget is ready and willing to vote for the Health Care Bill, regardless of what the good people of Austin have to say about it. Let him know that this will be his last term in Congress if he does.
No fights at this Townhall so the SEIU union thugs must have been absent.
"I think people are justifiably angry at the way Congress has been operating,"
Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.
From what I have read so far the event was (relatively) well behaved and other than some heated disagreements, which is to be expected, it was a civil exchange of ideas. Now here is a Parliament fight to watch.
Rep. Flake took and responded to UNSCRIPTED questions from the people:
Q: Do you believe that the Democrats will be using this bill as a means to an end to get everyone on a government healthcare system?
A: Yes, this legislation "will inevitably lead to [everyone being on] a single-payer system," …to have insurance, you’ll have to be on the government’s rolls.
Q: How in the world can we allow our children to have to pay for this down the road?
A: "We are committing generational theft"
Q: How do you respond to the idea that the government will essentially be setting standards on who lives and who dies?
A: The "government will have to ration either by costs or by services. It’s a legitimate fear of many that the government will start to ration services."

the suggestion, by deliberately concise treatment of a topic, that much of significance is being omitted, as in “not to mention other faults.
Meet Carlos Watson, MSNBC contributor and host of The C Note in his commentary forwarded the position that anyone who calls Obama a Socialist is really calling him a Ni***. Aside from the complete ignorance of Mr. Watson and others as to what Socialism is, something that describes Obama’s policies precisely, their immediate run to pull the race card is indicative of the collapse of ideals the left is experiencing.
Just some advice MSNBC contributors and others who believe that it’s just "white folks" who oppose Obamacare, it’s YOUR racism that is on display.
It’s just one of those days. Obama announces a budget cut of 1/35,000th of current federal expenditures and expects people to think he’s Reagan Part Duex.
Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) gets it right over the small size of the budget cuts.
"I appreciate the efforts to save millions by identifying unnecessary or duplicative government spending," McConnell said. "But let’s not forget that at the same time they’re looking for millions in savings, the president’s budget calls for adding trillions to the debt."

I’ve never been a "cruise person". Personally, I don’t get being stranded on a vessel at sea with a bunch of drunk people. Nor would I want to cruise to a place where the average summer temperature range is 20° to 50° Fahrenheit. It’s just not my thing, but it may be yours.
Enter Obama and the spreading of misery to all. You want an SUV, no; you want less regulation, no; you want to go to Antarctica, NO!!
The Obama administration is pushing to protect Antarctica’s fragile environment by imposing mandatory limits on the size of cruise ships sailing there and the number of passengers they bring ashore.
At a conference set to begin Monday in Baltimore, U.S. diplomats will propose amending the 50-year-old Antarctic Treaty. The move would seek to mandate, under international law, the current voluntary restrictions on tourism.
A U.S. document provided to The Associated Press by the State Department says the plan would "minimize the likelihood of marine oil spills" in the Antarctic and "ensure that tourism is conducted in a safe and environmentally responsible manner."
According to the Cool Antarctica website the cost for an Antarctica cruise ranges from "US$5,000 for a place in a twin cabinplus the cost of air fares and other sundry costs to and from your point of embarkation to US30,000. Certainly a longer trip will cost more.
I called a tour operator Expedition Trips to see what they thought of the potential outcome of this and they said "people will still go, it will just cost more".
And there you have it, Obama is spreading misery to a class of people (Tourists) because another class (Environmentalists) are in his back pocket. This is not the America I believe in.
Remember back in January all those people caught in the Purple Tunnel snafu? Me neither, but apparently one contributor, Patricia Jones Blessman is still holding a bit of a grudge against Obama. See, she gave $10,000 to the Obama Presidential Inaugural Committee (PIC) and subsequently missed seeing the inauguration because she was stuck in the Purple Tunnel.
She wrote an e-mail to the PIC and received this response:
PIC spokesman Josh Earnest, who is now working in the White House press office, said last month, "We’re sympathetic to the disappointment of those who had tickets to the swearing-in but were not admitted – many of whom had dedicated their time, energy and money to our successful campaign. It’s also why we’re following the congressional inquiry into the logistical problems that plagued the Capitol Hill ceremony."
Talk about a "go pound sand, we’re keeping your money" response. And really, Obama & Co© are good at keeping money and punishing the little guy.
Don’t take it personally Ms. Blessman, you are only one of 66,882,230. Back in 2007 blogger Rock Hacksaw, unabashed Obama supporter for Room Eight New York made this exact observation about the then candidate Obama.
Obama is running the risk of people perceiving him as using New York as an Automatic Teller Machine. He comes to the city, brings his ATM card, makes withdrawals, then leaves.
And finally, this jem which I am sure Ms. Blessman is feeling like this morning:
[Obama is] like the guy who sneaks into his girlfriend’s apartment every Friday night after a long week working; he spends the weekend laying up, eating, drinking, using the phone to call his homeys, watching the ballgames on cable television, screwing, sleeping and such, but never takes her out anywhere…They often feel that they are being used, abused and taken for granted.

There is no debate from me on the subject of wanting Obama to fail. Heck, I want Obama to become the poster child for failblog. Inversely I still like George Bush; I would hang out with the man because I’m sure it would be fun. But when it comes to speaking about Obama, George, please shut your trap.
Former President George W. Bush, making his first public speech since leaving office in January, says he wants Barack Obama to succeed and that it’s "essential" to support the new leader.
"I love my country a lot more than I love politics," Bush said. "I think it is essential that he be helped in office."
Seriously, did the MiB come by and flashy thingy you on Jan 21st erasing your memory of all the disgusting and vile attacks that Obama supporters perpetrated upon you as President?
Now I know that you really honor and respect the office of president and of course know first hand the pressure that the office places upon the man. But your policies of the GOP, including praising our political opponents is finished. Please, I implore you to just keep praise of anyone on the left to yourself; it is not helpful in OUR rebuilding the party efforts.
