The Oklahoman has a story this morning on town hall meetings being conducted across the state by members of Congress.
According to Frank Lucas' press secretary, Leslie Shield,
. . . about 250 people showed up for the meeting in Altus, "which is huge."Why isn't the government listening? A commenter - Amber, Norman, 9:05 AM - provides a clue in the form of a her interpretation of a letter by Tom Cole:
"In general, people have been more frustrated than usual," she said. "They don’t seem to be as angry as some of the (town hall crowds) you see on TV. People are just frustrated right now and they don’t think their government is listening to them."
While I appreciate your opinion, I believe that you sent me to Washington so that I can decide what is best for you and vote accordingly.
