Capitol Hill's Deaf Ears

My guide began to tell me of the hundreds of faxes Congressman Saxton’s office receives daily related to the Immigration bill; a stack of faxes “two or three inches deep,” she remarked.

I want to make a new holiday. I want it to be called "Punch your Congress-Person in the Teeth for not Listening" day.
