Huelskamp receives 89 percent
approval rating from town hall

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tim Huelskamp (R-Kansas) received 89 percent approval in his monthly telephone town hall his office conducted Sept. 19 for constituents.
In last week’s telephone town hall poll, 89 percent of the respondents approved of Tim Huelskamp’s work as their representative in Congress.
Seventy-four percent of Big First respondents support shutting down the government for a few days to defund ObamaCare.
Also, 86 percent  of Kansas respondents support work requirements for able-bodied adult food stamp recipients.
“Kansans in the Big First District hired me to serve them in Congress, and it is my honor and privilege to do so,” he said. “I’m encouraged to know my representation of their interests in Washington has not gone unnoticed.  Additionally, it is clear that Kansans want Washington to embrace common sense reforms, like work requirements for able-bodied adult food stamp recipients. It also shows that Kansans want no part of Obamacare, and want it defunded even if Senator Reid and President Obama force a government shutdown.”
These bipartisan telephone town hall events are attended by constituents of all ideological and partisan persuasions, and all constituents on the call are invited to participate. If you reside in the First District of Kansas and have not received telephone calls inviting you to participate in Congressman Huelskamp’s monthly telephone town halls, please contact (202) 225-2715.
During these live telephone town hall events, Congressman Huelskamp invites the listeners to participate in an unscientific, bipartisan survey by answering several poll questions.
