Do Lawmakers Listen?

When a Lawmaker has to justify a law to someone, that is the first sign that the Lawmaker is no longer listening.

      I think the term your looking for is “consultant” or “presidential library”! It’s not illegal when they do it.

          I saw that, congratulations Rue. That’s seriously incredible. An actual book. When I get some money, I’ll buy one.

  1. I understand the question you pose, but I disagree with your statement. Presumably, the lawmaker knows more and looks further into the future and hopefully has the interest of more than 1 person in mind. 1 person might be short-sighted and self-centered.

      Right, cause Lawmakers are so selfless. My premise is that if a lawmaker pushes back on a constituent’s concerns , then obviously, the constituent is of no concern to the lawmaker.

      Basically we pay their salary in good faith, that which we never receive in return.

  2. LOL. They listen… when they’re being praised/an election is coming up (someone remarked in the Aussie federal election in May that you know an election is coming up when things suddenly get done… when the parties aren’t promising to do it if they win the election).
