Sen. Barbara Mikulski, Rep. Steny Hoyer and other members of Maryland’s Congressional delegation hosted a Twitter town hall today to discuss with constituents the impact of sequestration cuts. Plenty were happy to have the attention of their representatives and sent the #AskMDDems hashtag trending.

The town hall gave legislators one more opportunity to ramp up the sequestration scare campaign and parrot the president’s call for a “balanced approach.”

And the questions kept coming.

Sequestration was the topic of the hour, but the conversation briefly touched on the environment.

Here’s one question we should have asked. We promise, it wasn’t us.
