Congress is Broken. Congress currently has a disapproval rating of 73% and has not had an approval rating higher than 30% since early August of 2009. “Only 19 percent said their member of Congress considers their constituents’ best interests most of the time or all of the time. ” https://morningconsult.com/2015/06/15/voters-dont-believe-their-member-of-congress-represents-them/ We know Congress has abandoned the people of this country and it is not going to change unless we do something about it.
So how do we take back our government and once again hold it accountable to the people?
- Overturn Citizen’s United and make all contributions from any source transparent to the public;
- Eliminate Gerrymandering;
- Push for Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits;
- Eliminate Congressional entitlements that are not available to all constituents;
Until we make Congress answerable to the people of this country again, none of the other problems facing us will get solved.
