Press Release

Washington, DC – On Monday evening, Congressman Lamar Smith (TX-21) held a tele-town meeting with constituents from across the 21st Congressional District. During the event, the Congressman answered questions and took comments on a variety of issues including health care, border security and tax reform. Participants were asked four poll questions during the tele-town meeting. Results can be found below.  

Rep. Smith: “A majority of poll respondents voiced their disapproval of President Obama’s health care law in my telephone town meeting. We still need to replace Obamacare with a health care policy that lowers premiums, lowers taxes and makes better health care accessible to all.

“I value these opportunities to hear from constituents and exchange ideas with them. Whether it’s discussing border structures or programs like E-verify, which shuts off the jobs magnet for illegal immigrants, these tele-town meetings provide a forum for me to learn how my constituents feel about many issues.”
