No link between D.C., population
We will not have cooperation between the elected officials we have working for us in the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House until there is true representation of the current population. What we have now are people who are not representatives of their constituencies. Look at the demographics.
What we need is a true sampling of the real population currently inhabiting this country. Then perhaps their interests will meet our own. This process will evolve slowly and ultimately may take generations to achieve.
