You thought our "do nothing" Congress couldn't be more despicable?

Sorry, gotta nitpick. It is true that the longer terms mean they have less fundraising obligation, but elected officials spending most of their time begging for money to get re-elected was most certainly not a consideration when the Constitution was written.

Ted Cruz sure does his best to make sure our Congress is exceptionally ineffective.

Is part of the reasons their time is so short because they have so many meetings due to lobbyists? Comcast has all but demonstrated they’re willing to throw money at anything that will support their merger, and have hundreds of lobbyists peppering Congress & FTC.
