Try XXX-224-XXXX.

There is another post about that number somewhere around here. I was watching Joy Reid and Michael Moore yesterday, and Moore was adamant that it was XXX-225-XXXX; however, it seems like people around here have said that the XXX-224-XXXX number is actually the correct one.

local state phone numbers. I called my Senators DC numbers but mailboxes are full, so I called local offices.

No to Devos
No To Tillerson
We want to see tax returns That is what I said.

Not a recording either.
