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.
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!!
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.
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.
What are the chances of defeating Doggett in 2010?
From what I have read, he was won past elections by wide margins.
PLEASE TAKE VIDEO RECORDERS TO THESE EVENTS!!!!
Nothing is as effective as a video tape, showing smug, arrogant, question-dodging thugs running from the people they were hired to SERVE!!
We need to have people with recorders at all of these meetings, everywhere across the country.
He he! And we’re talking Austin, the most liberal city in the state.
They aren't quite so brave when they get out of Washington and no longer have Capitol Hill Security watching their backs.
Great work! LLiberal LLoyd is going to vote for this boondoggle no matter how many angry voters show up. So the real objective is to take these “town halls” and turn them into videotaped shoutdowns.
Maybe the Blue Dogs will listen but I doubt hardcore leftists like LLiberal LLoyd will flinch. But the videos can get put on YouTube and maybe convince some fence-sitters to get involved.
I hope and pray that the same is happening all across this great land!
