What's Rep. John Carter's Answer To This Question?

There was a contest at the national blog Talking Points Memo this week to see who could be the first to get their Republican member of Congress to answer this question:
What does your member of Congress think? Should the president release records of the meetings he and his staff held with Jack Abramoff? Or not?
To take it another step further. Does he also believe the lame excuses the President has been giving for spying on Americans? Spies, Lies and Wiretaps
A bit over a week ago, President Bush and his men promised to provide the legal, constitutional and moral justifications for the sort of warrantless spying on Americans that has been illegal for nearly 30 years. Instead, we got the familiar mix of political spin, clumsy historical misinformation, contemptuous dismissals of civil liberties concerns, cynical attempts to paint dissents as anti-American and pro-terrorist, and a couple of big, dangerous lies.

The first was that the domestic spying program is carefully aimed only at people who are actively working with Al Qaeda, when actually it has violated the rights of countless innocent Americans. And the second was that the Bush team could have prevented the 9/11 attacks if only they had thought of eavesdropping without a warrant.
And while you're on the phone ask what he's going to do about the broken Medicare Part D drug plan that he voted for. Van de Putte: Problems with Medicare's program put Texans at risk:
Though I hope the result of this program will ultimately be positive, the troubles we are experiencing now are affecting our most vulnerable population - individuals who require life-sustaining medicines.
