I tried to call my senators today. (calling my congressman is a waste of time, as he is a party hack and will vote the party line no matter what his constituents might think)..

One had a “Please hold, we’ll get to you as soon as we feel like it” message, but did eventually come on line and ask what I wanted. If you’ve been reading this blog for long, you know what my comments were regarding the “budget debate”.

The other senators number just goes to voice mail. “we are experiencing heavy calls today….please, leave us a message to ignore as soon as we have time to do so”. And I tried twice an hour apart.

At least we constituents are having our say. Now if our comments could only be heard……
