VIDEO: Constituent Confronts Pro-Fracking Republican Over His $126,000 In Oil And Gas Money

We gotta keep showing them we can do town hall anger too, and we're actually educated about it

CONSTITUENT QUESTION: Do you think the fracking industry should remain exempt from the Clean Air and Drinking Water Acts?

REED: I am not a believer in expanding federal government, I believe we have to downsize federal government. What weíre on a path here by doing that I think is expanding government. I would defer to the state and defer to the local bodies on that.

(Audience hissing)

CONSTITUENT 1: Water and air are across state borders!

CONSTIUTENT 2: Where did your $126,000 from gas companies come from? Which lobbyists? Which companies besides Chesapeake and the other lobbyists?

REED: No idea. No idea. We donít keep track of that. I donít keep track of that.

Why do people keep voting for these liars? Time to get new ones who will represent the people instead of their own personal interests!
