Veteran Suffers Humiliation At VA Hospital: Congressman Steve Womack (R) Shows Little Concern [View all]

US Navy Veteran Suffers Humiliation At VA Hospital: His Representative, Congressman Steve Womack (R) Shows Little Concern

<snip>

After all of this the Carters did not know who to turn to. They knew they had been done wrong but didnít know how to remedy the problem so they began to write to various members of congress for assistance and specifically their own US Representative, Steve Womack. After all isnít the job of our representatives in Washington DC to ďrepresentĒ our interests as it pertains to US Government?

Recently I posted on www.theprogressivecop.com a page long response from Representative Womack in response to The Progressive Cop contributing writer Innocence Jadedís request that Womack denounce Rush Limbaugh over the Sandra Fluke comments. In sharp contrast to that response about an issue that affects Womackís constituents indirectly at best, the Carters received a simple six line response in which Womack politely tells them he canít do anything for them.

After receiving no help from Congressman Womack, Lynn began trying to call the offices of both Representative Womack and Senator Mark Pryor but was unable to speak with either of them. He eventually wrote a very blunt letter to both of them asking why they refused to answer his phone calls. Lynn had some very simple requests, among them was to know why his complaint was not further investigated.

Lynn goes on in his fiery letter to the Congressmen, to say that his grandson could have gotten better results. Reflecting on the letter to Congressman Womack seeking condemnation of Rush Limbaugh and the prompt and lengthy response we received compared to the response given Lynnís complaint, I would agree that Mr. Carterís grandson could have gotten better results from Mr. Womack.
