To the letter-writer interested in knowing if other constituents of Rep. Kevin McCarthy have had the same "no reply" communications ("How do I get a response from McCarthy? Donate?" Aug. 28): Well, I too have tried several time to get answers from McCarthy.

I have never had a reply from the congressman. In fact, McCarthy has blocked me on Facebook for my questions and the concerns I have expressed to him. I know of other people McCarthy has blocked from his Facebook account.

I even tried calling his Bakersfield office and asking them to have him unblock me. His Bakersfield office told me it was his Washington, D.C., staff that is in charge of his Facebook page. So my answer is yes, there are a lot of us out here not being represented. McCarthy only represents tea party Republicans -- period -- because he is not honorable enough to stand up and speak truth to power.
