    --only I know it's absolutely hopeless.  My Congressman is David Dreier, and one of his big issues is the so-called FAIR tax, which is almost a flat tax rate.

    When I contact him about any issue, I get back a letter saying he's working hard for ME on tough, tough new immigration reform.  He talks past me.  It's frustrating.

    About the only thing I got an actual connect on was the legislation against "crush" videos.  "Dave?  Dave?  I hope we can agree that stomping on puppies and kittens is a bad thing, Dave."

    He sent back a letter saying that stomping on puppies and kittens is a bad thing, but that he wasn't on the committee.  He probably voted for it, though.  For some reason, "I support your First Amendment right to stomp puppies and kittens" isn't a popular stance.

    But bugging him about the tax cuts?  Waste of time.
