Every day Gotta and I do the best that we can to keep you guys informed as to what’s going on, and granted, we could nap thru these next few months, but we’re racking up to steam roll to the election, determined to bring you the fastest and bestest news before the final days. We need help to maintain the servers and to just exist on a day to day basis every three months as you know. It ain’t cheap, but we’re determined. Please, if you can, contribute thru the Chip In button below (it goes thru PayPal, but gives us a running tally so you guys can see what’s going on), the ones to your right in the sidebar or email us thru the contact us page for a snail mail address. We appreciate it!!
Please note: You can chip in to help TPC using the widget below via PayPal or major credit cards.
We need to raise funds so we don’t have to worry about expenses for the next three months, both for site upkeep and our own mounting bills.
We so appreciate the generosity of those who are able to help out. We also totally understand if you can’t. And our fundraising goal is way, way less than nearly every site we know of, because we know our readers are not wealthy.
To those who are able to help out, please remember, without your donations, we have no Political Carnival.
He’s so cute. Via TPM.
Hey, credit given where it is due, the man has more cojones than most of his fellow R’s. Video above (via FITNFiles) is of Bass replying to a “corporations are people too” question.
Nashua, New Hampshire (CNN) – Working-class anger bubbled over at a town hall hosted by Rep. Charlie Bass Saturday, when dozens of organized activists berated the Republican congressman for not helping the job market in his home state.
“During the ’90s we could afford to hire members of the community, but now we’re barely able to pay ourselves,” said Greg Goldberg, a furniture store manager who wore an Obama 2012 cap. “How much longer are we going to be able to do even that if companies continue to get tax breaks while continuing to send our jobs overseas?”
Bass stood at the podium with his sleeves rolled up and two bottles of water at hand, scribbling down questions on a sheet of paper as he called on even the most defiant questioners.
“To what degree did working-class Americans contribute to this crisis?” asked Tess George, a Democrat who said “Wall Street greed” and spending on foreign wars were to blame for the debt crisis.
After an hour of questions, Bass thanked the group and said the back-and-forth gave him “renewed vigor and optimism” about the electorate.
“I welcome you to come and I appreciate the fact that you’re here,” he said.
Is your representative holding a public town hall meeting this August recess? No Labels called every office, and only 40% are scheduling open town hall meetings. It’s a sad sign of the state of affairs when our elected officials don’t have time to meet with their constituents.
No Labels activists spoke to all 430 current members of the House of Representatives to find that only 175* of them scheduled meetings. The results of the phone survey also reveal that members of both parties share the blame, with 67% of Democrats and 50% of Republicans stating they had no town hall meetings scheduled for the recess period.
