Is it hard to access your member of congress? and why?
I tried to get a meeting with my representative to discuss an issue....
(granted, I was asking if she would meet with me locally, not in d.c.) ---- she was unable to honor my request and instead offered staffers.....
now, I know there are certain times of the year when congress is in recess,
and I wasn't in any hurry ----
if you want to meet with me several months from now or even next year --- however long it takes I'll be patient.
---nope, she just flat-out won't meet with me.
I know each congressional district has a population of about 700,000
--- that's a lot, but how many of them are seriously trying to meet with their congressman at one time? I can't imagine it's that many. Most people go their whole lives without meeting their congressman once.
Is my congresswoman being unreasonable?
Do you think if I had made the request to meet in D.C. would that have changed the answer?

Yes, especially Senators. I have seen Representatives at stores and area functions before. Maybe try going through staffers first and maybe they might arrange something later

No, I don't think your congressman was being unreasonable. He doesn't know you from adam. Why would he agree to meet a stranger, even if you are a constituent. It would have been more prudent and reasonable to schedule a meeting in his office rather than asking to meet locally. Trump has us living in crazy times, so do you blame them for being cautious?
