There was a study released recently that showed most people gave great approval to their representative but gave a much greater subpar review of all other politicians.
As a nation we think we are being poorly represented by Congress yet all of us as a nation think our elected official is doing a fine job. We are morons!
We as a nation need to view Congress as a whole. If the current one is not working for us we need to change out every member up for re-election because they are part of the problem. If a couple good ones are affected, then let that be a lesson to the rest. If they know a few bad apples will cause the entire cart to get tossed and that the person next to them can be their downfall they will be more apt to bring that person back to representing the people instead of allowing them to go rogue.
