Tim Bishop (NY-01) to hold "Health Care Reform Rally" at SEIU Office

Tim Bishop will be holding a Health Care Reform rally at the Hicksville NY offices of SEIU local 1199 on Thursday, August 13th at 1:00 PM. This is 20 miles outside of Tim Bishop's actual district, and the implication is that Union thugs will be there to make sure only the "correct" people are allowed in.

Sheila Jackson Lee insists she really isn't trying to hide from you

But the evidence would tend to indicate she is being less than truthful.

Gene Green wants Photo ID to attend Townhalls

Word has reached my ears that Gene Green, after being verbally punked by a number of people who did not live in his district, has instituted a new procedure for anyone who wishes to voice their opinions at any of his townhall meetings. You must show Photo ID to get in the door. Apparently you must have Photo ID to speak to the Congressman, but you don't need one to vote for him.
Town hall meetings are one of my favorite ways to communicate with constituents. I have held hundreds during my years of service in Congress and always welcomed everyone to attend. Unfortunately, due to a coordinated effort to disrupt our town hall meetings, we will be restricting further attendance to residents of the 29th Congressional District and verifying residency by requiring photo identification.
