Anyone care to share a response to a written letter to a Lawmaker?

My wife works in the MR/DD field.
Federal cuts removed access to physical therapy for one of her clients.
She and the client wrote a "letter to a Lawmaker", pleading for some reconsideration on the cuts.

The response was a form letter saying how nice it was to hear that the writer was in favor of cutting costs.

IOW - just the opposite of what they'd written.

Personally, I've never gotten any response from any letter I've written other than a form letter of some kind that says - thanks for writing..

Is it even worth the effort and cost of postage any more to write?
Does anyone ever read the letters or do they just tag em, bag em and toss em and send a form letter response?
