Rep. K. Michael Conaway, who was recently re-elected to serve his sixth term in the 11th District of the U.S. House of Representatives, which includes Llano County, touched on a variety of topics Wednesday during a town hall meeting at the Llano Library.
As a vocal critic of President Barack Obama’s leadership, honesty and policies, the congressman said he is often asked why Congress has never brought letters of impeachment against the country’s 44th president.
In response, Conaway said he believed the frequent clamoring for this action, referencing those toward Obama as well as previous President George W. Bush, has “desensitized” the public to the issue. Since the House of Representative’s goal is to keep the conversation moving, he said continuous discussions about impeachment detract from other issues such as the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.
