U.S. Rep Joseph Courtney Seeking Social Media Input From Constituents

The Second District Democrat is asking his Facebook and Twitter followers for their thoughts and ideas on what Congress should be doing right now and will share some of them on Youtube later this week.

U.S. Rep. Joseph Courtney, D-Second District, is leveraging social media to interact with his constituents.

Courtney on Tuesday posted to his Facebook page asking his followers for input on what Congress should be tackling right now and said he'll share some of those questions and thoughts in a Youtube video later this week.

"There is a lot on Congress’s plate right now. What’s on your mind today?" Courtney wrote. He said he'll take questions on both his Facebook page and his Twitter account.

Some of the more than 100 comments on his Facebook page so far range from questions about the conflict in Syria to comments on spending cuts and gun control.

How about you? What do you think of the job Congress is doing right now and what issues would you like to see lawmakers like Courtney tackling? Tell us in the comments!

I would like to see corporations that earn billions in profits but pay nothing in taxes, have to start paying tax on their profits. Corporate welfare needs to end.

So basically you'd like to see the folks who work at those corporations start to lose their jobs? If you think these companies are simply just going to start cutting their margins, you're out of your mind. Any pinch on the tax side will drive them to look closely at all expenses, namely labor. Was it your intent to shift the "welfare" from taxation to unemployment benefits?
