http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/08/16/town-hall-meetings_n_928701.htmlWell, as it turns out, there's this whole tradition of "peaceable assembly" and the right to "petition the Government for a redress of grievances." And one way ordinary Americans can do these things is to go to a town hall meeting to meet with their elected representatives when they are in recess.
These town halls have seemingly gotten more and more popular as economic misery has taken root and grown across the country. It makes sense: they are one way in which average working class stiffs can penetrate the Beltway bubble and ask their lawmakers to respond to questions, listen to grievances, or otherwise attempt to hold them to account, because what are they going to do about it?
Well, as it turns out, lawmakers are going to start charging at the door!
