It’s the August recess and my Congressional representatives are nowhere to be found. Well, not all of them. Ted Kennedy is at his Hyannisport compound while he undergoes cancer treatment that would most likely be nixed under ObamaCare. That leaves my other senator, John Kerry, and my congressman, John Tierney.
I just perused their respective websites for upcoming events and have come to the conclusion that the closest I’ll come to seeing either of them is on the back of a milk carton.
Tierney’s site neglects to mention that he has been on August recess for a week and lists no upcoming events.
Kerry’s site states that foreign travel is causing his schedule to be “in flux” during the August recess.
It leads one to wonder: Are Tierney and Kerry so used to successfully mailing it in that they don’t feel the need to mix with the unwashed? Or are they hiding from constituents who are angry and fearful over ObamaCare and don’t want to be embarrassed and end up on YouTube?
Feel free to give their offices a call and ask why Tierney has no public events planned for the recess and whether Mr. Kerry plans to spend the entire break busy with foreign travel.
