True Slant:

Congressmen spend between 5 and 7 hours a day on the phone begging for money.

And by the way, when you’re a freshmen, you have to fill out sheets of everybody you call, and how much money per hour, and they have coaches that teach you how to get more money from each one of your phone calls, and who to call, and what data points to have on them to tickle them to make them more apt to give you money.

It is out of control.

And it’s legalized.
