Astrue Misses Missoula Event

Michael Astrue, Social Security's Commissioner, got stuck in Arkansas and did not make the public meeting scheduled in Missoula, MO with Senator Max Baucus, the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee. Nancy Berryhill, Social Security's Denver Regional Commissioner substituted for him.

The Missoulian reports that Charles Drinhill, the father of a Social Security disability claimant, and the son's attorney, Susan Gobbs, showed up to express their frustration with delays in adjudicating Social Security disability claims. In response Berryhill talked of her pride in Social Security's internet presence. That did not satisfy Drinhill or Gibbs.
