Jim Himes has connected you to his computer-side chat for tomorrow. I am a life-long Democrat and have come to understand that a left-only view is as damaging to US (as in USA) as a right-only view. Your site is IMHO intolerant of any but the arch-left view. Now that I am unemployed as of 14 days ago, I find intolerance of views that might encourage job creation like anti-work-anti-capitalism-anti-employers is foolish. After all...you will not hire me but come capitalist employer will one day.

First, I'm very sorry you have lost your job. I know how hard it can be; I was unemployed for 18 months just over 2 years ago, and it was brutal. So hang in there and best of luck.

As far as my far-left leaning goes, I'm probably guilty of exaggeration and using outrageous comments to help spark the conversation back towards the middle. We seem to be bombarded on a daily basis by hateful statements from the right, and so I'm trying to help counter their outlandish claims.

But I'm not anti-work at all, and not anti-capitalism as long as it's done with some concern for the plight of the average citizen. I'm getting tired of people being duped by the crocodile tears shed by the super-wealthy, when much of what we're suffering from now can be traced to legislation they used their power to help enact.

Anyway, if you have a question for Rep. Himes, feel free to ask it here and I'll pass it on tomorrow, but try to keep it short as we'll only have an hour for the hangout.

Google is impossible to sign into, so here are my questions:

Dodd/Frank is seriously flawed, why not restore the Glass/Steagall act that worked so well till removed by the Clinton Administration, causing the 2008 collapse?

The 1996 Telecommunications Act, a voluminous legislative corporate giveaway, seriously impacted consumers financially, why shouldn’t consumer protection regulations, in place prior to the 1996 Act, be restored?
