No taxation without representation

The western front of the United States Capitol. The Capitol serves as the seat of government for the United States Congress, the legislative branch of the U.S. federal government. It is located in Washington, D.C., on top of Capitol Hill at the east end of the National Mall. The building is marked by its central dome above a rotunda and two wings. It is an exemplar of the Neoclassical architecture style. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Many members of Congress are millionaires or multi-millionaires. They don’t represent me or many other less fortunate Americans. They have no idea how their proposals affect the working poor and those living or struggling to survive on a fixed income. They do not represent me and should be replaced with elected officials who do understand the problems of those they claim to represent.

  1. I think we need term limits. I am sick and tired of career politicians who do not live under the legislation they pass.

    • If term limits reduced the influence of campaign cash and lobbyists, I would agree. Part of the current problem is caused by the newly-elected members of Congress who don’t believe in government.

      • I think with time, the influence would be reduced and when people expect to serve only two or four terms, they will take the job very seriously. Those newly elected members believe in government, they just believe in limited government and feel they are up against “government gone wild.” When everyone there is on equal footing, there will not be bullying by those who have been there forever and new members will not feel intimidated. Everyone who serves should be keenly aware that they, too, will live under the laws that are enacted.
