To the Editor:
On Tuesday I called my three federal representatives, Senator Shaheen, Senator Ayotte, and Congresswoman Shea-Porter to find out their position on auditing the federal reserve.
Auditing the federal reserve issue has been around for quite some time. There was not one staffer that knew where the senator/representative stood. I find that odd. A person is either for auditing the federal reserve or they are against auditing the federal reserve. Simple question. The person should know by now where they stand on this issue, and yet no one could answer it.
I was asked to give my email so they could reply. I did not give it. I gave my phone number. I wanted to know the answer. I did not want an email that had nothing to do with my question sent to me as in the past.
I just called Representative Shea-Porter's office again. HR 24 which wants the federal reserve audited will be up for a vote today. The intern and the staffer did not know how she was going to vote. Yes, no or not at all. The person on the phone wanted to send me an email with the response and not return my phone call with a phone call. This is unacceptable.
Our representatives work for us. Not enough staff. How long does a phone call saying "yes, no or not voting" take? I do not want an email with spin. I just want an honest answer. Is that too much to ask from a representative?
