Rep. Steve Kagen (D-Appleton)

Kagen spokesman Jake Rubin said the office hasn’t finalized future town hall meetings. Rubin said meetings would be posted on Kagen’s Web site. The Appleton Post-Crescent reports that Kagen has had a pair of encounters with angry audiences in town hall meetings on health care.

Rep. David Obey (D-Wausau)

Obey’s office says it will announce constituent meetings a few days ahead of time. When asked why the schedule wouldn’t be released earlier, spokesman Daniel Bachhuber said he would not comment.

Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wisconsin)

Kohl’s office said he has no public meetings scheduled, but he’s meeting with health providers next week and he held health care-related town halls in June.

So Senator Kohl’s chicken, huh? And Rep. Obey doesn’t want people to know? Where’s Rep. Sensenbrenner? Traveling again? Poor Rep. Baldwin sounds like she just can’t manage the job by wimping out and using phone conferences. Leave it to the lefty from Madistan to laugh in the face of representation.


  1. Paul Ryan, on the other hand…I’m impressed.

  2. Ryan is campaigning for something in the future and has to take a lead in this after he voted for the first stimulus bill.

  3. I’ll give Ryan kudos for the effort but 45 minutes (not all, but most) doesn’t seem like a lot of time to hear everyone voice their opinion

  4. The democrat representatives in Wisconsin are very disappointing. Many of them know they are safe regardless of how they vote, thereby they do not have to endure public floggings at town halls from their constituents.

  5. Disgusted says:

    I just called Herb Kohl’s office…they refuse to tell me where he is meeting…they said it will be released in the media but didn’t tell me which Wisconsin media. I told them they were cowards. I’m sure the union thugs are getting personal invitations. I have a call into our local TV station to try to get my hands on his schedule.

    And Senator Feingold…give me a break…he picks towns in the most remote locations of Wisconsin as far away from the heavier populated areas as possible. They are both cowards and I can’t wait to vote them out of office!

  6. The Lorax says:

    Disgusted, you’re wrong on Feingold. He goes to every corner of the state to do his town halls, and he does them all year long.

    He already held ones down in the Milwaukee area this year and he is cycling through again.
