We pay Congress to do their job for the people who elected them and for the rest of us as well. They, however, serve the people who bought them and their party first. Occasionally, the people’s interest is taken into account. Corporations and billionaires can buy government. The rest of us don’t have enough money to turn legislators’ heads. What with voter suppression, gerrymandering and the other dirty tricks of politics, we have no real democracy left.
I mourn that. Sorry for the rant.
