Actually, FOLKS, they are the MAJORITY. Do the math. And let's get something right here, the congress is the MOST representative of the population. Let's run the numbers shall we? Dems: 52 Senators, plus 200 Congressman = 252. Repubs: 46 Senators, plus 232 Congressman = 278. It is the DUTY of the House of Representatives to bring forth and act upon the issues most concerning for their constituency, that is why there are so many districts, so that each small area of the country will have SOMEONE in DC to bring their local culture and issues to the table. THAT is why the House controls the money, and not the slimeballs up the ladder where power is more concentrated to fewer and fewer individuals.
