First District GOP Rep. Raúl Labrador is one of three co-chairs of the new group of "free-market and liberty-minded" members of Congress holding monthly meetings with the media. The inaugural meeting last month earned coverage for GOP opposition to the GOP leadership's budget.
Tuesday's "Conversations with Conservatives" will be moderated by Rob Bluey, Director of the Center for Media and Public Policy at the Heritage Foundation. Topics will include tax reform and President Obama’s proposed “Buffett Rule" regarding tax increases for millionaires.
Citizens may submit questions via Twitter by using the hash-tag #CWC. Labrador's spokewoman, Ellen Carmichael, said Monday that the congressman wants to hear from Idahoans. "We'll be following Twitter and we'll be giving question to the moderator.'
The event begins at 11:30 a.m. MDT. In addition to Labrador, a dozen other conservative House Republicans are expected, including the other co-chairs of the group, Reps. Tim Huelskamp of Kansas and Jeff Landry of Louisiana.
Other participants include Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio, chairman of the Republican Study Committee, the leading conservative group in the House and GOP Reps. Allen West and Sandy Adams of Florida, Mick Mulvaney and Jeff Duncan of South Carolina, Ted Poe and Louie Gohmert of Texas, Ann Marie Buerkle of New York, Bill Johnson of Ohio and David Schweikert of Arizona.
