The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has a list of whose complaints should fall on deaf ears:
Hearing road-builders argue that the state needs to put more money into highway construction is a lot like hearing farmers complain that crop subsidies are too low or taxpayers say that their taxes are too high. Still, in this case, legislators need to listen carefully to what road-builders are saying.
Stupid taxpayers complaining all the time. No need for the legislature to listen to them.
