Why Congress Doesn't Give a Shit About You

Because those fuckers are not only rich, but while most of the rest of us have lost ground, those asswipes have only gotten richer. It will probably be no shock that some of that increased wealth comes from borderline corruption and insider trading.

*BORDERLINE* corruption? Are you being polite or somethin'? 'Cause I ain't seein' nothin' borderline about the whole cash-for-laws scam going on in Congress. It don't make it any less bribery to call it a "campaign contribution" when it's quite legal to liquidate your campaign funds to your own pocket once you leave Congress (if you leave in any way other than in a coffin) and pretty much any expense can be called a "campaign expense" if you so much as hand out a business card to a potential voter while doing it.

Absolutely correct and well said, Mr. BadTux! Until we ban lobbying, publicly fund all elections and provide equal amounts of free airtime for all candidates we are open to all forms of corruption.
