This is a list of scheduled town hall meetings in every state--both democratic and republican. Participate if you can. People showing up have pounded their politicians. Make them accountable!!! The guy from Utah now says those attending his town hall meeting were from other states and were paid (he wishes). They pounded the shit out of that lying sack of worthless shit republican slime. A representative in northern California had to have a police escort out and another had to duck out a back door.
Most folks reading this site are working people who have little opportunity to be heard. If you guys don't start to engage and try and alter the trajectory of your lives, they will bury you. To them, especially the republicans, you are expendable. Be Heard! They want you to feel powerless. Use what power you have.
Remember, they don't want to hold these meetings,and if they do hold them, they don't want you there. If you can attend--Go.

Well, it looks like some of the current dates are unreliable because the republicans can't handle the heat (the heat of doing their job). All but 19 have cancelled their meets or are changing the format to ticketed events (isn't that sweet) or tele-meetings. I think everyone should make sure they do everything that can be done to make sure that in 2018 they no longer work for you (us). They don't want to work for you? Come 2018--tell them they're fired.
Meanwhile, go to their websites to stay on top of their slippery ways and get their number and call. Like I said, they don't want you to participate in anything that involves YOUR LIFE! Yes, they are cowards, but they control the calendar.
Both articles are the same--but a little different. They're short, so read them both and learn. Stay on the fuckers.

Look at the massive town hall meeting that showed up for republican tom cotton. The crowds have been huge--often exceeding capacity, leaving many waiting outside.
This young woman asks if he will guarantee that people with preexisting conditions will be covered as they currently are under the ACA (ObamaCare). She has a preexisting condition and would die if not covered as she currently is.

I posted this earlier, but had not watched it (only the short tweets). Well, I just finished watching it, in full. It's an hour and forty five minutes long. I'm sure his combat experience (he is a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan) helped him get through that town hall meeting of about 2,000 people. They pounded him. This is how it's done. At least he had the courage to show up and provide a venue large enough to accommodate a huge crowd.
So many republicans are in hiding.

Citizens are attending town hall meetings by the hundreds and letting their voices be heard. Congress members are blown away by the numbers and are not used to having their voters demand answers and action. This is as it should be and it needs to remain a constant. Demand action and demand answers. There are so many, but here are a few more. Keep on them--keep up the pressure.

Town hall meetings ain't what they used to be. There have been so many good examples I haven't posted (all the other trump shit going on), but I thought this one is especially evocative.

New to congress, at a town hall meeting in kentucky--trump land (go figure). Person with pre-existing comes forward.
After reading his story, click on the Washington Post link. Kinda long, but very interesting,
