This flyer begins, 'We are on the receiving end of Senators? and Representatives? endless fund-raising calls. And trust us: we hate getting those calls every bit as much as they hate making them. Each hour in 2008, campaigners for federal offi ce got on the horn and raised $600,000. That's $14 million each day, $100 million each week, $5 billion for the year! Elected offi cials spend so much time dialing for dollars it's as if they're moonlighting a second job. With the economy, health care, energy and so many other issues at stake, who has time for that?'
