House of Representatives -- Member Richard Nugent: FRUSTRATION!
Posted in the Zephyrhills Forum
#1 Aug 6, 2011
I participated in a “town hall” arranged by our 5th District US Representative in Zephyrhills on Friday.
I’m frustrated that he took over 45 minutes of the hour to proselytize his politics before he open the floor to questions.
I’m frustrated that the town hall was billed as wanting to hear our concerns and issues, but only permitted questions while stressing “no comments.”
I’m frustrated that he wouldn’t address the reasons for the national debt so that we could better understand the reasons for his voting record.
I’m frustrated that “facts” were not part of the discussion, only political rhetoric.
I’m frustrated that he pointed his finger at the Senate as the root of all problems since “they” would not defer to the House. It’s always “their” fault.
I’m frustrated at the “politics as usual” approach to managing our country while we have real work to do.
I’m frustrated at the reiterated “no compromise” position to working with others in Washington.
I’m frustrated that his responses to 3 different recent emails on specific subjects were word-for-word identical and didn’t address any of the issues.
Most of all after 42 years of service to our country I’m frustrated at being treated as a subject rather than a constituent.
