These are the only two Democrat reps from the North Texas region - all others are Republicans.
Both of these individuals have canceled plans to have town hall style meetings on Obamacare, opting instead to do 'tele-town hall' meetings, where their assistants screen callers during a 'generous' one hour teleconference.
This is happening all over the United States. Democrat Senators and Representatives are taking the advice of the DNC and Pelosi/Reid, and ducking in person meetings to discuss Obamacare. Why? The evidence is all over your TV screen. People are pissed off at this bill and its ramifications, and take their rightful opportunity to voice their disgust to their elected representatives. Democrats hate this, because they hate being exposed - angry mob rallies are their bread and butter, and they can't stand it when the tables are turned. The more this anger is seen on TV, the more it makes like minded individuals stand up and voice their opinion - big no-nos for the Democrats.
The third person in line for the Presidency has called such protestors 'un-American' and 'Nazis'. Mainstream media and Democrat members of Congress call them violent, unruly mobs. When protests like this happen in support of Democrat stances, it is called 'patriotic', 'exercising their rights', 'freedom of speech'. When they happen in oppostion to Democrats, it is 'evil', and must be stopped by any means necessary, including calling out the Union thugs.
