Rep. McNerney is obsessed with having these exclusionary Town Hall telephone meetings; or meetings like Chamber of Commerce luncheons where all the questions are pre-screened. He is evidently afraid to face his constituents in a real Town Hall where the questions are live and not controlled. It is clear that his staff screens who signs up for these telephone town halls and many registered Republicans mysteriously don't get the connection call and later get a message "sorry we were unable to reach you at the start of the town hall". Same situation with Rep. Miller's town halls - it seems to be right out of Pelosi's play book. What better reason is there to vote McNerney out of office?

McNerney is a joke. But you folks reelected him, so enjoy your phony telephone town-hall meeting. The man is a coward and won't face his constituents in person. Gee, I wonder why???

We should make sure that he addresses the McKinsey Study that came out last week....saying that over 30% of companies were going to withdraw healthcare benefits once Obamacare takes full effect! This would force all of these people onto the government run plan...the true agenda of Obamacare afterall...
