"McConnell’s offices too often don’t answer phone calls, leave the voicemails full and if you can get an email through, it sits unread. If you want Mitch to hear you, the only option he gives you is paying for $1,000-a-plate dinners or confronting him if you are lucky/unlucky enough to run into him. We already pay his salary; we shouldn’t have to pay again to have our voices heard. Since he likes to talk politics over meals, we are just giving him what he wants."
