Do Americans fail to understand that being a senator or House member is a great career and that more than 90 percent of the members want to make “serving” a career?

Do Americans fail to understand that the money and support needed to keep getting re-elected is only available from powerful interests with lobbyists who are looking to advantage themselves by getting Congress to pass legislation favorable to them?

Do Americans fail to understand that Republicans and Democrats in Congress participate in, support and foster this corrupt system and have zero inclination to change it?

And finally, do Americans not understand that most of what they hate about the unfairness, the wealth transfer, the printing of money, the deficit, the debt and this very slow economy is the direct result of what both parties do in Congress?
