Re: “The Skinny

So you are saying to look the other way? That's exactly how they got us into this mess.

Re: “The Skinny

Thomas Allen look at the percentage of funding that PP and NEA received, next look at the the amount that is of the budget. Comparative to other line items they are miniscule.

Re: “The Skinny

Did you really write "and to her credit, McSally has been supportive of maintaining elements of the Affordable Care Act that helps keep their doors open.." To her credit!! She supports repealing the ACA! Have you read the Trumpcare bill? You can kiss that funding goodbye. She supports kicking people off of health insurance and making it more expensive for seniors not yet eligible for Medicare. She gets no credit.

Re: “The Skinny

Mr. Allen;
Apparently you didn't read the article: "They go there for affordable, quality health care. In Arizona alone, more than 33,000 of people are provided with health care services." 33,000 people are NOT going to PP to make a political statement. They're going there for their health care.

Re: “The Skinny

Society used to look to women to provide the love, care, concern and nurturing for others. But with the movement for so called equality, they look like every other protester. I guess each special interest group must demand their rights,...and around and around we go. Everything is not about abortion.

I still want to be part of the loving, nurturing group of women.

Re: “The Skinny

Democrats are not the "fringe" in McSally's district. Clinton won here by 5%. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2017/2/6/1629509/-These-23-Republicans-hold-congressional-districts-that-voted-for-Hillary-Clinton

Re: “The Skinny

PP has become nothing more than the NEA. They are a political arm of the democratic fringe party. Sucking up dues and federal funding.

You can read about the Democrats' plans to disrupt GOP town halls at this article here, which includes excerpts from their town hall disruption playbook. http://nypost.com/2017/02/18/obama-linked-…

Re: “The Skinny

Ever try to get through on Rep, McSally's office line? Shunted to voicemail, then learn that her VM box is full. Email? You have to use a lengthy form, then go through the "I am not a robot" dance, with a further level of multi-level security.

This is NOT a congresswoman the least bit interested in what her constituents have to say, just wants to isolate herself from the folks who elected her and pay her salary. Period.

My bet is no one within the city limits of Tucson will ever see her hold a town hall. Elderly (like me) with mobility issues, or don't drive? Forget it.

She is not alone, however. You'll have a very similar experience trying to get through to either Senator Flake or McCain. Voicemail boxes full, and no way to send an email easily. Town halls by either any time soon? 'Tis to laugh.

Re: “The Skinny

John, I do not agree that ACA should be repealed without replacement. What do you suggest to those who Finally were able to become insured? Who do our elected officials work for, only those who contribute large amounts to campaigns and purchase healthcare without subsidies?

Re: “The Skinny

Sad when a politician avoids or refuses to have an open dialog with their constituents just because they are afraid people may have different opinions. I think we deserve better leadership.

Re: “The Skinny

Im sorry but I'm glad she wasn't stupid enough to show up for an ambush. Only a democrap would have fallen for this. This is like inviting a person to stand by a wall used for firing squads and when the person suggests a different place, they call them a coward. Again, a democrap would have showed up.

Re: “The Skinny

I agree with what McSally is doing and I am one of her campaign contributors. We need to completely repeal the "ACA" before anything else. Doing anything other than that falls into the hand of big business.

Re: “The Skinny

Thank you for this information. Considering McSally received and spent $7 million campaign contributions (source OpenSecrets), would she be beholden to her constituents or her contributor? Would she even have a conflict of interest listening to her constituents?
