I listened to this 5 minute video and didn't hear one direct answer to any of the questions posed. If you ever listened to other congressman speak at a a town hall meetng, you'll hear the same talking points and rhetoric. Mr. Cicilline disparages the Tea Party in one breathe, the Republicans in the next then agrees with the gentleman that both parties are guilty of ineffective governing. Ladies and gentleman, he told you want you want to hear to gain your vote. If he can't be honest with you at a town hall, how can he honestly represent your interest in Washington. I say he's a NO VOTE. Let's wait until we hear from Mr. Doherty; maybe he'll open an office across the street for city hall.

Funny, no one asked ole' Davey boy about the 100+ million dollar hole he left Providence in when he left office. And he whacks the republicans? lIncredible! People have short memories I guess.

Kudos to Rogerd of analyzing the Congressman's response as presented. Hopefully, the attendees at the meeting heard the same although, its been proven that the best time to try and convince folks of your statements is after a meal. Most people are receptive of just about everything after eating. Even B - - - - - - -!
