Posted on 08/01/2009 11:16:50 AM PDT by The Bat Lady
I attended "office Hours" at an Austin Randalls, for Congressman Lloyd Doggett today, supposed to be 11-12:30.
Following that he summerally called an end to the discussion and attempted to leave 30 minutes before the published time. He was followed through the parking lot to his car by constituents chanting just say no, His car was blocked and he was delayed leaving.
A Doggett supporter described the incident as a nasty crowd'
Help us show him how these constituents feel.
The next office hours meeting is scheduled for 4pm today at the Bastrop County Courthouse. Make your voice heard.
How fun! He needs several more reminders.
LOL - the rascals are on the run.
I’m glad to see this post. I called him the other and spoke with an aide and told them that Texas DID NOT want this obamacare! I hope he gets run out of town asap
WHAT a good time I had today and I must admit I was on the edges and not starting all the chanting and pressuring. I figure I call his office every day so he hears from me, this time it was little old ladies on walkers and they had never done this before.
Almost all the signs, no socialized medicine, keep your hands off my rights, just say no, pictures of Doggett with big X’s across the face.
There was no sound system, so he could only be heard by 5 people at a time. He was asked if this Health care was going to cover illegal alliens and he said, NO.
they started calling him a”liar” and “read the bill”.
I had a copy of the bill (weighs almost 10 #’s) and they pushed me to the front but I didn’t get to question him.
There were many new “freepers” there, I think people are waking up. If he wasn’t scared when he left, he should have been.
Way to go!!
Thanks for the AWESOME report. They have underestimated the wrath of the voters including senior citizens. Three Hundred is a lot for a Saturday morning. Wonder how many are going to show up in Bastrop.
You need a version the San Diego chicken at the next one to show what a chicken he is for not staying there the whole time and not answering questions.
Wonderful. He lied to his constituents on his last vote, even touting on his website, he’d vote no, then did the exact opposite. His office in DC couldn’t be reached because the lines were jammed, and the folks in Austin seemed clueless about his last minute vote change.
Actually, I hope Doggett and the other Democrats all get the same treatment. Knowing Doggett is a typical Democrat who fears the public, he needs—and the rest of them need—to see angry crowds at all their office hours and to be confronted wherever they go in public. And the words people should use are: You sunuvabitch! We did not elect you to screw us. You better learn to say, “Do you want fries with that, sir?” because on January 3, 2011 the only job you will be able to get around here is working the counter at McDonalds. And you’ll probably get fired from that job within two months, too.
This is a nasty crowd.
They ain't seen nothing yet.
Lloyd Doggett, chicken$#!+.
What’s wrong, Lloyd boy . . . can’t stand the heat?
You’re such a man.
Way to go Bat Lady!!!
Since these traitors don’t listen to “We the People” anymore...we have to do what our ancestors would do—boil up some tar and break out the feathers. Find a good sturdy rail.
If they don’t listen to this, then that is next...
That liberal imbecile first ran for the senate back in the 80’s. I don’t know how anyone could have thought he’s vote any other way.
Thank you for going and for the report. This will insipre others to do the same.
Doggett is a pos far far leftist. He was pretty stupid to say a few hundred angry voters didn’t have a say.
I hope somehow he gets voted out but his district is pretty solid leftist isnt it?
Come on , let’s All get to our polticians offices.
Sure hope some video of this turns up.
He deserved every painful moment of it.
