It occurred to me last night that at the county GOP meeting on Wednesday, one of the members complained that she tried to call Sen. Kay Hagan's office and was greeted by a answer machine message telling her to call back at another time, no matter what time it was. Evidently, this woman has been trying to call the senator several times. Wonder why that is?
Now, Senator Hagan says on her website that she is working with Sen. Collins to reduce the porkulous bill by $100 billion. Still that was February 10th and there was no information on her website as to what she is reading and voting on.
On Senator Collins' website, she states that she and not Kay Hagan, but Senator Ben Nelson are working on a compromise that would bring the "recovery" bill down to about $110 Billion. Below is information on her website:
Highlights of the Nelson-Collins agreement include:
• $42 billion in transportation infrastructure investments
$77 billion in education invest. including aid to states, sp. ed. and Title I funding$87 billion in temporary and targeted Medicaid relief to states
$6.4 billion for environmental infrastructure incl. water and sewer infrastructure
$70 billion for a one year fix for the Alternative Minimum Tax
$2.9 billion for weatherization programs$500 million for firefighters assistance programs
Sen. Hagan's website is very vague and doesn't give us any information like Sen. Collin's does.
Do you think that may be one reason why we can't leave a message at Sen. Hagan's office?
