Should Our Legislators Hold Town Hall Meetings?

As most of you know, Senators and Representatives have being holding town hall meetings during their August break (and not going abroad for a medical check up) about the health care reform bill.  Some of these meetings have been fierce but it shows the senators care about what their electorate think. 

So my question is do you think our representatives should hold town hall meetings to inform their constituency on whats going in the legislature?

Would you attend if your Rep was holding a town hall meeting and do you think such meetings would be fair?  Can these meetings create change?

Townhall was regualarly done even during the military era.

Thats not solution to anything!

The guy organising it will steal more money from Government accounts for organising such events.

That will be a great thing if it can be done.

However, our leaders dont really give a damn, they only need the masses once every 4 years during re-election, and they dont make a promise that they tend to keep.

It would be nice, if they can give a chance for the people to voice their mind and actually work for the people, the way it ought to have been

Town Hall Meetings are originally our own culture, I don't know why we've done away with them.

You darn right I would. I would schedule my next trip around one of those such meetings so I can show up and voice my opinion. Heck, I would hire a scoreboard to make sure he sees my question in huge FONT. roflmao!!
