More Manchin Hogwash

Joe the Schmoe has announced his staff will conduct numerous "public meetings intended to let his constituents express their thoughts and ideas." At first it sounds like he really wants to hear whats going on.
Take another deeper look:

ALL except one of the published meetings are between 9am and 5pm, except one at the Oak Hill Library which is Thursday, May 23, 2013 for a very short 2 hours: 5:30 p.m.- 7:00 p.m.

All the other "public meetings" are held during hours a majority of working people cannot attend. When you skew the times you select to hear comments, you get a lop-sided view. Joe knows this. He doesn't WANT to hear what working people aka the taxpayers have to say. He doesn't want the Federal workers, i.e., your postal worker, your meat inspector, your VA Hospital employee there to question why he denied them a cost of living adjustment 3 years in a row - while he gave his Senate staff a $371,000 raise from 2010 to 2011.

Joe doesn't want you to know about his bigoted voting stance, and how he votes HIS values, not his constituents values. Joe makes a big tax break to the timber industry in WV when he was governor, but doesn't want you to know about that either. He makes a big deal out of some school kids who were tragically killed, but he doesn't bat an eye at the hundreds and hundreds, if not thousands that US drones have killed in the Middle East. They are STILL CHILDREN!

In this case Joe the Schmoe does not want to hear the working taxpayers side of things. But then again, tell me a time he ever did ?
