Politics Another Question For Mike McGavick
Given how hard it was for me to get a straight answer out of McGavick on net neutrality this week (after a phone call, to which his campaign said they hadn’t been asked about that yet, they’d get back to me…and then a long-winded statement that didn’t say anthing..and then a non-answer to my follow-up…and then, finally, after another follow-up question, they wound their way around to an answer…) this contest, sponsored by Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo to get a straight answer from McGavick, seems appropriate.
Here’s Marshall’s challenge:
So here’s the deal. We’re holding a contest to see who can get a straight answer out of Mike McGavick on Social Security — against phase out or in favor of it. To the winner goes a special TPM ‘Privatize This’ t-shirt, a TPM mug and … and a special place in our new TPM Hall of Social Security Heroes. Anyway, it’s really exciting stuff.
