In February of this year the Washington Post published this article. I’m sorry I didn’t see it until now, but maybe it can add a little fuel to the fire when Patrick McHenry conducts his town hall meetings this week and next.
These Town Halls are the only time that the citizens of the 10th Congressional District are allowed to speak directly to our elected representative. Patrick has deemed that he will only “hold court” in August of each year. He then goes on to brag about how he engages with his constituents.
The author of this article, Daniel W. Drezner is a professor of international politics at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University and a regular contributor to PostEverything.
In his article he points out that Patrick either doesn’t know what the Federal Reserve does or he is just making stuff up to energize the “know nothings.”
He shouldn’t have put it in writing, though. Now we all can see who the real “know nothing” is.
Here’s the article.
