Feeling grateful that we have a member of congress dedicated to our district.

I supported Congressman Reed during the shutdown because he was doing everything possible to try and bring both sides to the table. He shouldn't be blamed for the extreme right outliers in the tea party. His final vote was one of protest--the bill did nothing to address our countries out of control spending and even gave a hundred grand to a widow of a former senator. THAT is the sort of pork we see added on to large omnibus bills, and I support anyone who isn't willing to saddle up and dig us further into debt.

Once again William R twists and misrepresents just as he did about HR 3726. What a surprise!

In his weekly e-mail dated Oct. 18, Tom explains his vote against keeping the government operating: "This week, Congress kicked the can down the road again on the debt ceiling and funding the government. I voted against the measure because I believe Americans have been put through enough shutdowns, fiscal cliffs, and risks of default." Is voting against keeping the government open not a vote for shutdown?

Here is what the House Republican Conference had to say about the SNAP bill that Tom voted for: "Reforms the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), saving more than $20 billion over 10 years.

Reading Judeye's comments are like peat and repeat. First off Rep Reed did not vote to shut down the government! Rep Reed did not vote to cut SNAP benefits! Jobs bills passed by the House are still stalled in the Sen Reid black hole senate. Why won't Sen Reid bring the job(s) bills up for a vote??? Judeye please tell us,please inform us where you get what you spew which is so untrue? Next you next tell us that the CCH is operating in the black!(surplus)When will we hear how wonderful your Obamacare policy is? Having difficulty figuring it out after all the illegal and unconstitutional changes were made by your dictator friend?

Strange that Tom, a legislator, does not mention his party's failure to pass needed legislation.

Does Rep Reed think he was representing the people of his district when he voted to shut down the government? The shut down cost 24 BILLION dollars to us, the taxpayers, of this Country.

Was he representing the people of his district when he voted to cut SNAP benefits which will affect thousands of families in his district? Did he bother to find out most of those receiving SNAP are WORKING..many full time.

Has he worked to bring the JOBS BILL to the floor of the HOUSE for debate and a vote? The bill that would bring badly needed good JOBS to our area.

How can he objectively represent the people of this district when he takes so much money from outside industries like the insurance industry and gas and oil (yet we are to trust him on fracking?)

No I do not think he represents the people of this district nor has their best interest in mind when he votes.

When has he held a town hall meeting in Dunkirk? Yet he has time to speak at Tea Party meetings.
