This is the mealy mouth say nothing answer ai got from this two faced lying jerk. I don't have the letter or fax I sent in that I have to send them through other means now as he knows me and at least he had to send me a rubber stamp answer here. The letter was not even dated. 7-14-10
Thank you for contacting me to express your concerns about a potential lame duck session in Congress. It is an honor to serve as your Senator and I appreciate hearing your thoughts on this matter.
As you may know, scheduling debate and determining the Senate calendar is a responsibility of the Senate Majority Leader. Please know that as Senate leadership engages the caucus about the upcoming schedule for the fall, I will be sure to keep your views about a potential lame duck session in mind.
Thank you for contacting me to share your views. I hope you will continue to keep me informed about the issues that matter most to you.
Jeffrey A. Merkley
United States Senator
