Town Hall Meeting

Next week Mike Lee will visit my town to do a town hall meeting. What should I ask him?
Thanks,

He Should Have Owned It

He should have said something like "Lobbying is protected in the Constitution. The alternative is to close my door and insulate myself from the people whose lives my votes with will affect."

I was disappointed that, on "Uncommon Knowledge," Peter Robinson didn't push back when discussing Lee's proposal to give more tax breaks to parents because, as Lee put it, their children will be supporting the Medicare recipients. Yes, Mike, but won't those children grow up to burden the Medicare system as well? It was sleight of hand and "fuzzy math" and Peter Robinson did nothing to challenge it.

No Surprise

How else will Lee get a plum job as a lobbyist on K Street when his term is up? This guy was built for the "revolving door".

Mike:

Voted YES on the Amendment S.Amdt. 2867 to H.R. 4152. The Senate version of this legislation - offered in the form of a substitute amendment to the House version, H.R. 4152 would provide $150 million for direct aid to Ukraine. It would also provide for loan guarantees (meaning that the U.S. taxpayers would be stuck holding the bag if the loans are not paid).

Voted YES on S.Amdt. 626 to S.Amdt. 633 to H.R. 2832: To provide trade promotion authority for the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement and for other trade agreements.

Yeah, he's a hypocrite GOP plant fake "Tea-Party" type.

I used to think he was one of the good ones.

Not anymore - by a long shot.

These wolves in sheep's clothing are even more dangerous to liberty than the rats we know are rats like Graham and McCain.

yep

I guess Rand taking lessons from him.

Mike Lee is a fake, an establishment hack

Just like Ted Cruz

I'm split. I thought I saw a

I'm split. I thought I saw a Capital hearing where Lee defended the NSA, but I can't find it. Google turns up information of him going against domestic spying, and introducing amendments to support that position. Then I found this on the Export-Import Bank:

Mike Lee is a favorite of Glenn Beck...

Which always makes me apprehensive about the person. Glenn Beck also picked Michelle "dumb bell" Bachman as his choice in the 2012 Republican Primaries.

Mike

and ted cruz seem to hang with each other, too.

Teddy is another favorite of

Glenn Beck... Nuff said. I've noticed Beck starting to part from the budding romance he 'had' with Rand in his own mind lately, so that makes me feel better.

A covey of faux libertarians...

His expression is great when confronted by the reporter
