Congresswoman Slaughter’s office has seen a dramatic increase in calls from constituents since election day.
The office receives 105 calls a week on average- a 400% increase since before the election.
“These are people who know precisely what they’re talking about, they give bill numbers of what they want done,” says the congresswoman. “This is really new to me. What can I do? What can we do, because people have a very strong feeling that we have a country to save.”
