The members of congress are an elite group that are not representative of the people who elected them. Their interests are not aligned with the average American since they have better health care, better retirement benefits and other benefits that the American people do not have. The Constitution calls for all citizens to have the same rights and as matters stand, the people in congress are treated far better than their constituents. In order for a representative body to make any changes, they must have the same interests as all other American citizens. Otherwise, they do not have any stake in making decisions that affect the masses.
