Confessions of a Congressman: 9 Secrets From the Inside

A congressman writes in Vox: Confessions of a congressman: 9 secrets from the inside

  1. Congress is not out of touch with folks back home
  2. Congress listens best to money
  3. Almost everyone in Congress loves gerrymandering
  4. You have no secret ballot anymore
  5. We don't have a Congress but a parliament
  6. Congressional committees are a waste of time
  7. Congress is a stepping-stone to lobbying
  8. The best people don't run for Congress
  9. Congress is still necessary to save America, and cynics aren't helping

I didn't think any of these were secrets, but they're all true.
