Pleased to have Delivered the #PuertoRicoRelief anti-Trump #Genocide Message to .@ChrisMurphyCT Staffer 'Christian'
Very Disappointed that .@SenBlumenthal had no one on his Staff with time to speak with Me (A Constituent) *all*day*long* October 12.
(Thread) Why Is My Member Of Congress Too Busy To Hear My Call? ~ 1 Reason .@SenateDems are the Minority: Too Busy To Listen to Constituents
2/ I Called My Senator Last Week to share some thoughts - doesn't matter what topic. I am a Constituent, & Sent him there to represent me.
3/ In this case I wanted to share some thoughts on Trump's #Genocide by Neglect of #PuertoRico - The Senator & I agree... I think...
4/ #PuertoRico was not the only thing I wished to share with the Senator. But here's the thing: I ID'd myself as a Constituent, & asked...
5/ ...to speak with a Staffer. I was asked if I needed Constituent Service, or if it was a Policy matter. I said it was #PuertoRico.
6/ I was asked for my email address, so they could send me a form letter, because all the Staff was too busy to talk to me, right then
7/ I said I would like to talk w/ a Staffer who could then know what I had to say,gave phone #'s & asked for a callback when Staff was Free
8/ I was told no guarantee they'd call back that morning, as all very busy. I waited. All Day. All the next day. And the next 3 days.
9/ Now, I understand the Senator's Staff (of 52) is busy. But they should *Never* be too busy to Hear what a Constituent has to say.
10/ Moreover, a Senator's Staff should at least make a Constituent feel they're *interested* in hearing them - & make the effort
11/ Now, I'm a busy man, too. But it turns out the Senator has 52 on his Staff. None of these 52 Persons have time congressional-staff.insidegov.com/d/a/Senate/Sen…
12/ .@SenBlumenthal Staff Members Conley, Hegreness, GoldBlatt, Peronace were too busy to return this Constituent's call re #PuertoRico
13/ .@SenBlumenthal Staff Members Steele, Chandler, Nestor, Pruchnicki, Sandman & Carpman were too busy to Listen to me re #PuertoRico, too
14/ Neither did .@SenBlumenthal Staffers Bell, Shaw, Benton, Kanick, Graham, or Toppin have time to hear this Constituent re #PuertoRico
15/ Seems .@SenBlumenthal Staff Members Saxon, Ramirez, Sandler, Matson, Fonseca-Ramos & Mikolowsky are much too busy to hear a Constituent
16/ And .@SenBlumenthal Staffers Piazza, Kelsey, Rodriguez, Weber, Zembik & Loewenstein are much too busy to return This Constituent's call
17/ Also too busy to return a Constituent's call on .@SenBlumenthal's Staff are Bradbury, Mullane, Lane, Sakai, Jee, Rubiner & Daly.
18/ .@SenBlumenthal Staffers Lebeau, Downes, Kalonia, Lawson,Nasella, Kehoe & Das haven't had the time to listen to this Constituent, either
19/ Neither have .@SenBlumenthal Staff Members Quiles, Cagenello, Zukowski, Eyman, Campbell or Story had a chance to call a Constituent back
20/ & .@SenBlumenthal Staffers Allen, O'Leary, Shaw, Rios or Radford haven't made the time for 5 days to hear a Constituent.
21/ Here's the thing. .@SenBlumenthal spends a lot for his Staff - $1.35m from 10/16-3/17 ... legistorm.com/member/2813/Se…
22/ For ~ $2.7m/yr in Taxpayer Salaries, a Constituent may be forgiven for thinking a Senator's Staff Member may find the time to Listen.
23/ So, .@SenBlumenthal - I've some thoughts I've tried to share,but Your Folks were busy. You've got my number(s). #PuertoRico #Indivisible

Senator Lindsey Graham cited his experience as a judge today,in angry comments after Dr Blase Ford's testimony. He didn't mention he was kicked off that job; Military Appeals Court said it was unconsitutional to be both. scribd.com/document/38961… #WHPDaily #Indivisible #AltGov #Law
.@LindseyGrahamSC with neither the Facts nor the Law on his side, pounds the table in angry #Kavanaugh Hearing rant, sanctimoniously citing ethics while ignoring his past ethical lapse trying to be a JAG judge & MOC at the same time scribd.com/document/38961… cc .@tribelaw .@RWPUSA

@VickyDurieux @48Gailschwerdt @ASlavitt @timetograbback 1/ Distracted by #Kavanaugh's #RapeTrain? Don't be. They're Going After Your Social Security & More! washingtonsources.org/gop-quietly-se…
Another enema of Sunshine: #AltGovDaily #IndivisibleTimes #WHPDaily #AltGov #Indivisible #SVRAV
@VickyDurieux @48Gailschwerdt @ASlavitt @timetograbback 2/ Another enema of Sunshine: The House just passed a FY2019 Budget bill that Trump has promised to sign, which guts Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid to the tune of 2 Trillion.
@VickyDurieux @48Gailschwerdt @ASlavitt @timetograbback 3/ The Social Security Trust Fund, separate from the debt of the US, is currently funded at 2.5 Trillion. So this budget is effectively a theft of most of the Trust fund.
