"The latest Gallup public approval rating for our so-called 'representatives' on Capitol Hill stands at 11 percent -- two whole percentage points higher than 2013's worst-ever 9 percent measure. But what if Congress changed? What if our representatives did something dramatic? You know, to show Americans that they get it, that they'll start representing us, that they're about doing the job and not just riding the gravy train of power, high pay, lavish pensions, special exemption from Obamacare, etc.? No, I don't envision a majority of the 535 House and Senate members jumping into a phone booth and coming out with Super Solon capes. My fantasy actually has its roots in reality." (02/18/16)
