    There's no indication in what Rep. Price said that he's not doing his job. Quite the contrary, when I've contacted him I've always received a very thorough, carefully researched, and thoughtful response. I only wish all our Congress members were as good.

    Don't know how many briefings Tillis has missed, but as my Rep I'd much rather have him know what the Pentagon has to say about ISIS, rather than listening to one of the key architects of an utterly disastrous military decision, and who's no longer involved in the government. I guarantee you Obama is involved and knowledgeable about our foreign policy and security. Hagan has no business in Congress.

    It is hard to believe that Congressman Price would sit there and tell his constituents that he hadn't read the whole agreement, but he expects to vote for it. He should be ashamed, this isn't a partisan issue, this is a life and death issue. He should be going through that agreement with a fine tooth comb, making sure that EVERYTHING in it is in the best interest of the people he serves. Once before he got the attitude that he knew best and didn't listen to his constituents, then Fred Heineman came along and beat him. Congressman Price, do your job!!

    Is it better to read it and make the decision afterwards as Representative Price is stating; or is it better to announce either that you will reject it without bothering to read it, or as Rep. Boehner stated, read it and then reject it.

    I see we still have"so called reps" that don,t read bills no matter how important the subject. and votes for them . It is almost impossible to contact these " so called reps of the people" to express your views. I agree we need term limits on ALL of them. Let them get a real job and see what we go through daily

    What else could be expected of one of the most consistant "rubber stamps" for any Obama policy. Price is a great example of everything that is wrong with American politics and a poster child for term limits. To say that he mindlessly follows liberal Democrat policy is to assume that he has a mind of his own.

    So Tom skipped a briefing--one? How does that stack up against Obama's skipping like 60% of his daily national security briefings? How does that compare to Kay Hagans "missing" how many of her scheduled briefings--once so that she could keep a hair appointment? If one is all he missed, I'd say thats pretty good.

    Absurd comment.

    Compare him to Thom Tillis who recently skipped a Pentagon briefing on ISIS and instead consulted with Dick Cheney. Yep, the architect of one of the most catastrophic foreign policy decisions in American history, and a war criminal is the preferred authority of our NC Representative. Unconscionable.
