Rep. Vito Fossella
(R) of Staten Island still refuses to hold a townhall meeting with constituents about phasing out Social Security. So the In This Together
campaign is holding one for him.
According to this press release
, they're holding a townhall meeting in Fossella's district tonight at 7 PM.
When we stopped by the congressman's website today we noticed he's saved us the effort of coordinating with his constituents and gone ahead and posted his own constituent letter
on Social Security.
In the letter, he writes: "Let me be clear: I do not support the privatization of Social Security. I never have and I never will."
He then goes on to lay the groundwork for supporting President Bush's plan to privatize Social Security. So, as you can see, Fossella's got the bamboozling game plan pretty much down.
And as long as we're on the subject, what's the deal with that fundraiser Fossella held with Jack Abramoff and fellow DeLay crony Tony Rudy at Camden Yards back in June of '02?
