    They may cancel all town halls. What will happen is that the constituents with questions/opinions will show up at their offices. If that fails to bring answers, they'll show up at their homes. If that fails...

    And in the offices and at their homes, will the disruptive and publicity seeking mob listen to the answers? Video - Youtube: Kathy Castor Town Hall Erupts in Tampa Florida, August 6th, ... - Glenn Beck, Congress

    And from today's NY Times:

    http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/07/opinion/07krugman.html?_r=1

    "[...] Key organizers include two Astroturf (fake grass-roots) organizations: FreedomWorks, run by the former House majority leader Dick Armey, and a new organization called Conservatives for Patients Rights.

    The latter group, by the way, is run by Rick Scott, the former head of Columbia/HCA, a for-profit hospital chain. Mr. Scott was forced out of that job amid a fraud investigation; the company eventually pleaded guilty to charges of overbilling state and federal health plans, paying $1.7 billion yes, thats billion in fines. You cant make this stuff up.[...]"

    Americans want detailed answers over this bill. So far--we have gotten a bunch of rhetoric--we want the nitty gritty details--that's all.

    Like how much is this going to cost & exactly who is going to pay for it--& how are the people who are going to pay for it--pay for it.

    Nancy Pelosi--actually gave congress a 2" x 3" wallet card--for talking points to sell this bill to their constituents. Well Nancy you can't cram a 1017 page bill on a 2" x 3" wallet card.

    It's like our elected officials are nothing more than a bunch of used car salesmen.

    If that fails, then they will drop in the polls. If that does not encourage representatives to open themselves up to "questions/opinions" (as you put it) then they may get voted out of office.

    They don’t want to appear in person where extremists would have to shout then and everyone else down. They don’t want to host town hall meetings where some right-wingers would go seemingly solely to verbally attack people. Politicians have no way to be sure whether hateful protests would happen if meetings were to be held live in town halls. As one politician said "If someone says you're going to walk into an ambush, you don't do it just to prove there's an ambush."

    What a time we live in that the people know whats in the bill more than the politicians that vote on it. That's why they are afraid and will be gone in 2010 and 2012.
