There’s an old saying that “everybody hates lawyers – except for their lawyer”.
It’s the same with Congressmen. We complain in general about the low quality of our politicians, but give our hometown representatives a break, more often than not. To test this theory, and to guarantee your blood pressure will shoot sky-high in the next few weeks, go to http://www.congress.org/congressorg/megavote/ , and have all of your Senators’ and Representative’s votes sent to you via email.
After you’ve seen a few results, let me know what you think.
