    I don't know who trains his Congressional staff, but they are snarky, vile, and unnecessarily argumentative with constituents who call or visit. Burr is too lazy to train his staff to provide constituent services, which even the odious Jesse Helms did.

    Even when we North Carolinians call for assistance with veterans' issues or applying for federal programs, we are treated poorly and with shocking incivility.

    A group of us traveled to DC in March as part of Moms Take the Hill Day, and Sen. Burr's staff were the most rude, obnoxious, and dismissive of any staff we met with. We were barely permitted to finish a single sentence, even though we'd made an appointment in advance. What's the point?

    You're right: it's laziness. And contempt. Probably in equal measures.
