Information on “Town Hall” Meetings with Mark Pryor

O.k., apparently this is as close to his constituents as Senator Pryor wants to get:  two dates for phone in town hall meetings.  (See the schedule below) Cross Section is trying to learn how the questioners will be selected.  It seems like this format would give the senator the opportunity to select callers who will ask soft ball type questions.  If we can find out this information, we will let you know.  Face to face town halls would give more people an opportunity to voice their opinion although it seems that people attending the face to face town halls with their representatives are being unfairly characterized as an “angry mob” by the DNC. 
 
So far we have been unable to find any town hall information for Blanche Lincoln, but we will keep trying.
 
If you are in a different state and are fortunate enough to find a senator or representative who is willing to have a face to face town hall, let us know what happens.  Barbara Boxer thinks we’re all too well dressed to be real,  so you might want to wear your jogging outfit!  Those kind of comments just make me shake my head.  Last night I emailed the President and told him that my frustration was real, and that the people that I’ve talked to have real problems with government interference in healthcare- a sector that accounts for 1/7 of the economy.  So, speak up and let them know how you feel! 
 
Keep calling and emailing!  Any way that you can make your voice be heard-do it!  Call the white house at 202-456-1111.  Leave comments on their website at www.whitehouse.gov.   We CAN make a difference.
