Ask the tough questions!
There are a lot worse Congressmen than this guy. Still good of you to hold his feet to the fire.
have good answers!
I know this shouldn't be the case and it is unfortunate, but you're lucky to have him as a Congressman as opposed to what most of us have...

at least he listens to me
I would trade my congressman for yours in a heartbeat.
10-15 million more voters need to believe in non-interventionism (liberty) at home and abroad to change America. Minds changed on Syria. Minds changing on privacy. "Printing money" is part of the dialogue. Win minds through focus, strategy.
To his credit, I feel like the Congressman gave some pretty decent answers. Also, props to him for answering seriously and not just blowing off the person asking the questions like a lot of politicians do in these videos. That said, good job by the person asking the questions for asking them.
but he is still not 100%
... admitted by him: "I did not read that bill". If you sign a contract with a bank and don't read the small print you are screwed. His admission that he went awry on the last 10 bills is worse than it first appears; it shows his current trend and that he is headed for moral rock bottom.
Thank you, SIR!

anyone can and should do this all the time, keep them on their feet, make them think we are watching every move!

big bump! Keep the heat on!
60% is just the last 10 votes... WTF kind of answer is that?
FISA - aren't you worried about setting up an infrastructure for a spy state run by habitual liars with the only protection for the citizens being "we won't use it on you"??? I hate to question your (congressmans) intelligence, but do you really not understand the nature of government??? the income tax started out as only 3% on the very wealthy, now look at what it has evolved into. Your short sightedness is dangerous.
It is the highth of hippocracy to speak out against the wars but vote to fund them. Just because they added a little kickback for you. Things will never change as long as you keep going along to get along.
Now that's keeping 'em honest! Don't change a thing about the way you're asking the questions. Your impact extends beyond your congressman too; all the people in that room heard your description of the unconstitutional war in Afghanistan, and it was stated so clearly that there is no question in my mind that sleeping minds were immediately awoken with that statement. You are a true patriot.
Although I would like to see all our congressmen vote with the constitution 100% of the time, I have to say a few things that impressed me about this man. I'm amazed that the guy knew enough about voting constitutional to throw out "I voted against the NDAA...so did Ron Paul, Justin Amash", "It's time to come home", "I voted to shut bases in Europe", and "I tried to freeze defense spending". Whether or not this guy is telling the truth: he understands there's a demand for this type of government.
You showed up and pressed the issue. Great work.

I've had the misfortune to deal with pathological liars before and politics is a game that draws them in from all over. Power attracts a certain type of person.
not the most polished delivery, but definitely you get major points for showing up and sticking it to him.
no idea who that rep is, but he did seem like a slippery character.
but I dont ask these type of things for a living
Big tip of my hat to you,sir.Much respect and thanks to you.
Too bad that room wasn't packed with Ron Paul supporters.
would have been awesome!
That sort of thing changes the minds of the people watching. I'm very impressed.

Never let up on these guys, folks. They work for us.

I dont know who this congressman is, nor is he for my state, but I think he gave some good answers.
and ask WHY!
just to say great job.
