Doggett gets chilly reception

Back in Central Texas while Congress is on a month-long recess, U.S. Rep. Lloyd Doggett faced an angry audience at a town hall meeting at an Austin Randalls grocery store Saturday.

Doggett, D-Austin, spoke at the store at Brodie and Slaughter lanes. A video of the event on YouTube shows that many in the crowd had signs denouncing President Barack Obama's proposed health care plan.

Witnesses said that when Doggett was asked whether he would support the plan even if he found that his constituents opposed it, Doggett said he would. People then began chanting "just say no" and overwhelmed the congressman as he moved through the crowd and into the parking lot.

"The folks there thought their voices weren't being heard," said Kathy Acosta, a Bastrop resident who attended the meeting at Randalls and another one later that day in her hometown. "They were angry, but they were respectful. There wasn't any violence."

Calls and e-mails to Doggett's office were not returned Sunday.

Maybe some of these idiots will start to get the message! I doubt it, but one has to hope!

I wonder how many people it will take to stop these socialists in office from stripping our freedoms away. I say term limits on everyone and vote every incumbent out of office, If there were no incentives for these bastards to be corrupted, then maybe within a decade we could have people in office to serve rather than to steal.

I echo the sentiment - maybe our congresscritters will finally start to pay attention to the people, rather than the lobbyists. But somehow, I doubt it.
