    No town halls: Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand nix health care talks in state

    Sen. Charles Schumer and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand will not host any health care town halls in the near future.

    You're out of luck.

    Aides to the New York Democrats told the Daily News they won't be sponsoring any town hall meetings on health care. Instead, they will be touring the state and soliciting opinions in more informal settings. "During recess, as he does every year, Sen. Schumer will be in over 20 counties across New York City and state talking with thousands of constituents, discussing the issues that are important to them," Schumer spokesman Josh Vlasto said.

    Glen Caplin, a spokesman for Gillibrand, said she will hold "Senate at your supermarket" events, a custom she began as an upstate congresswoman.

    "Everyday citizens who might not attend traditional town hall meetings can talk with her in their local grocery store about the issues that are on their minds," said Caplin. He noted the senator is discussing the issue at all of her events. Other senators - notably Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.), Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) and Ben Cardin (D-Md.) - have faced the wrath of health care skeptics at town hall meetings. ... brand.html

    at least those other senators listed below had the guts and the nerve to hold town hall meetings even though they KNEW they were going to be yelled at and biotched at over and over

    Let me translate what they really are saying.

    We are going to meet with our supporters who will tell us what we want to hear and tell us how wonderful we are and to hell with constituents who disagree with us.
