You don’t have to limit yourself to your Rep.. You can call (and shame) them all.

At the end of the day, Boehner’s office will update the list of those who are there. His office told me that it will be at republicanleader.house.gov

Make some noise.

As expected my Congressman, Gresham Barrett, is there. Wish we had more like him in D.C.

This is an insurrection?

I don’t think so. Ping me when they start fist fights and chair throwing.

Any dems there yet?

If a few reasonable democrats would come in, it could isolate the leadership and bring this issue home.

Call all the Rs in TN. Where many are gathered in OUR name, .........

I think it would encourage the President to order them back to the House. If it grows to be large, the Senate might be shamed into coming in as well. But it begins in the House.

Why won’t Nancy allow up and down votes on issues such as energy and drilling, when she herself has said these are big issues?

Geez, isn’t Congress supposed to do the people’s business? Isn’t Congress supposed to hash out the differences and issues?

Or does Nancy think that we live in a People’s Republic?

Haven’t they heard, the age of oil is over. It was proclaimed this morning. They need to be bipartisan and keep up with the latest claptrap.

So Nancy thinks the Congress needs a month vacation, before they return for an abbreviated fall session. Since it’s an election year, they will adjourn by late September and not come back till January.

I agree! From Anderson, SC.
I was a little concerned when I didn’t see his name on an earlier list.

and normally.. i’m ok with that, but right now we need a vote on drilling...

however the way congress normally goes, they’d vote on 20 other stupid bills and pigeon hole drilling anyway.

“With whom? The opposition has left town”.

Exactly. That’s why this is not an insurrection.

Looks like Mike Pence is the ring-leader. Damn, it is nice to see someone actually taking a leadership role for once.

I wish I were in Barrett’s district. I had the pleasure of meeting him and Steve King at a gathering for Fred Thompson several months ago. They are great guys. Unfortunately, I am in Bob Inglis’ district and am growing more and more disgruntled with his global warming/energy policy.

By the way, Bob Inglis is on vacation.

If it grows to be large, the Senate might be shamed into coming in as well.

You said 'Senate' and 'shamed into doing something' in the same sentence? I appreciate the sentiment, but since 1998 I have given up any hope of our Senate acting in any manner that would reflect what we used to know as shame.

I hope your positiveness will help bring me back from the edge.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA)

When it’s time to stand up, Hunter is always there.

My Rep, Terry Everett, isn’t on the list, but i will give him a pass based on how he just ripped the blue dog trying to win the seat he is vacating.
