If the US Congress is the best congress that money can buy, and it is, why is Congress so unpopular.? Because it represents its buyers so well who are a fraction of the 1%. The popularity of Congress has nowhere to go but down when more and more people realize that this Congress no longer represents anyone other than its buyers.
What should we do? We MUST adopt public financing of elections and sharply limit the influence of lobbyists. Please see my prior post on the subject Gilded Age part 2
