Senator Arlen Specter Hosting Town Hall Meeting

I'm watching Fox News' coverage of a town hall meeting on health care hosted by Senator Arlen Specter. People are upset with more than just the health care. The people are upset with government's decisions that have been made in a vacuum.

In response to a question regarding the writing of bills at a Junior High School reading level, Senator Specter responded by saying, "I'll try."

Americans are tired of hearing those words from our government. The Congress has not listened to the American people for quite some time. TARP, the Stimulus Package and the continued discussion on health care are just examples of the government's failure to listen to the people. A gentleman talked about trust. The American public no longer trusts the government and is growing tired of this.

I have been unemployed for over 8 months and have talked with many people who are actively looking for jobs. The Stimulus bill hasn't done much for me or others. I have had to apply for extension to my unemployment benefits. I have sent out over 800 resume and almost 400 applications. The American people have no confidence in the economy or the government.
