Pompeo won't be like Huelskamp; will help constituents

Rep. Mike Pompeo, R-Wichita, isn't following the lead of Rep. Tim Huelskamp, R-Fowler, who has said that he won't help constituents with the Affordable Care Act. Though Pompeo opposes the health care law and wants to repeal it, he told The Eagle editorial board that his office will do its best to help constituents with whatever questions they have. Earlier this summer Huelskamp said that his office would tell constituents to "call your former governor," referring to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius. At a town hall meeting this week in Hutchinson, Huelskamp said his office wouldn't be encouraging constituents to sign up for Obamacare.
