It may be simple but instruct me how again and I am there! I have a tweeter account with password. But after I access its confusing how to bring up site??

Hit the tweet button on this forum on your left. Sign into your twitter and then click tweet. Once the tweet window comes up look for the "view on twitter link" click that. It should go to your home page

On top is a "who to follow" put in 99er or whoever you want. You will find peope fast.

What is your name on twitter I can find you and show you how to find others

Can we tweet before the 3pm live meeting starts with quesitons or should we only do so after 3pm? I guess what I am asking is, do they only reply to tweets sent after the 3pm meeting starts?

You could try sending questions a little before 3, I am not really sure about that. gettheminNOVEMBER participated in the last one, fortunately for him, he is working right now so I can't ask him. They should see all the questions though if the hashtag is attached to your tweet.

So far they replied to one of my questions. Asked why no legislation to keep company's from discriminating against long term unemployed. Answered back....there is some legislation. So I replyed back to the reply when will it be passed? I figured out they are very vague. They know I know there are introduced bills. BUt when can we see results..I guess I should have asked.

Hank Johnson has introduced HR1113, the widget is on the right of the Forum. It ends discrimination against the unemployed. Big Joke! They don't even handle age discrimination!

All they did was point the finger @ repubs. and back at us. Worthless Tweet meet. They don't want to help. They seem to like the fact that they can scape goat through the repubs.

It seems like they answered ONE question and then ran away and hid!

I am still dumbfounded by the way they ignored us! ONE question answered about HR 589, and steve was told HR 1113 had been proposed (Unemployment Discrimination). How will that help us now?

We have to keep going! Evil or Very Mad

Just because they did not answer does not mean an impact was not made. Keep your heads up!

I think we may have steamrolled their meeting...I'm loving it. They may not have answered it but they got a Mouthfull from me and many others. I think they ignore us sometimes but during this meeting all be it short lived, we got in their faces. I want help and answers from them and all they could do was point the finger at the GOP & back at us. I wonder in Pelosi was there? If so, It must have been uncomfy for her. Bottom line, when the dems. had control of both the House & Senate not enough was done. But hey, how ya lik'n all the help we got with healthcare. None here for me. I can't even get Medicaid or Medicare.

Pelosi and Hoyer were both there! I loved it too! Felt bad for others who had questions on different topics, but we sure dominated it!
