    Boxer=response always.
    Feinstein=no response. She did respond once three weeks after the fact. God, I can't stand her.

    I know we can't always get the vote we want for our issues but when a dem consistently votes rep lite it truly makes me crazy.

    Thanks for the great info. I am sure Feinstein's aids are getting sick of me. Boxer's are always polite and seem to care when you call. What a difference.

    The more understanding one posesses, the less there is to say and the more there is to do.

      That's weird. I ALWAYS hear from Feinstein and usually people are very nice to me there. 3 weeks is pretty fast, actually. Boxer usually takes MONTHS.

        Don't know what to say but that has been my experience.

        same experience. I send lots of emails and even some letters to both Senators -- always hear from Feinstein, even if it is pretty non-responsive. Seldom hear from Boxer.
