A convention of states would be a good start. We need term limits to get rid of the “professional” class of politicians who are lining their oickets without helping our country. We also need to shake things up and show the political class that we do not need them or their hair-brained schemes. A balanced budget amendment would be good as well. Our representatives and senators are drunk and intoxicated from spending our money without our infomed consent or our input. That sholud end immediately!

Many comments below are suggesting Term Limits… the poll was looking to identify the problems with DC (many more than listed) – Term Limits would be one of the solutions! Congress spends too much and too big was another problem.
Check out Convention of States Action. We are grassroots movement of millions looking to provide solutions to help all of these problems using Article V of the US Constitution!
Lots of information and our petition – conventionofstates.com/?ref=53458

YOU’RE MISSING THE MONEY MEN BEHIND THE TRAITORS. SOROS , TOM STEYER, The ZUCKERBERG , GATES, JEFF BESOS, and too many more to list. BUT SOMEONE SHOULD. FOLLOW THE MONEY, FOREIGN INFLUENCE ON AMERICAN POLITICS. SUNDAR PICHAI SEEMS VERY UNAMERICAN. ALL THESE PEOPLE WITH THEIR FOUNDATIONS AND GLOBALIST FRIENDS IN EUROPE. TAKE BACK CONTROL OF OUR INTERNET. CHARGE FAKEBOOK, GURGLE, USETUBE MICROPOOP RENT TO USE IT BUT UNDER OUR RULES. 1 BILLION $ A MINUTE. THEIR INCOME IS TAXED. IF THEY SELL IN AMERICA, COMPANIES MUST BE HEADQUARTED IN AMERICA. NESTLES LIKE MANY OTHERS MOVED THEIR’S TO SWEDEN.! FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS as individuals, companies, foundations or trusts WILL NEVER BE ALLOWED TO BUY AMERICAN LAND, PROPERTY, BUSINESS’S AND ASSETS SUCH AS LEASES ON AMERICAN TERRITORY, GULF AND ALASKA, EAST AND WEST COASTS. SO MUCH MORE. GOVERNMENT ELECTED PEOPLE, THEIR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND STAFF WILL NEVER BE ALLOWED TO PROFIT FROM THEIR POSITION WITH INSIDER INFORMATION. AND AS THE BIDENS HAVE DONE FOR DECADES, MAKING DEALS WITH OUR ADVERSARIES FOR THEIR PROFIT AND CAUSING HARM TO AMERICA. ALL THESE BACK DOOR SECRET DEALS WITH CHINA, RUSSIA, IRAN ARE BRINGING THE WORLD CLOSER TO WAR. IF WE SURVIVE THE VACCINE WAR.

Why wasn’t “no term limits” listed as a poll option?

I wish term limits were mentioned. As of this Administration, the drive to push America away from a capitalistic society …slowly into communism is clear.

If there were a term limit of eight years that would solve a lot of problems. None of the running forever. And they would actually accomplish something. We had a mayor here who before he ran for office said his limit was eight years. He did more for this city than most. The mayor now is under recall.

Very few in office are actually representing us. They are on a joy ride and being paid for it. It HAS to stop.

I think both parties need to call a truce, check egos and party prejudice at the door. Consider what is good for the country not their careers and re-election.So many now spend over 90% of their efforts while in office in raising money for their next campaign?

Need ‘Other’ as a choice.
The main problem is corruption.
They are all a bunch of political whores selling their services to the highest bidder.
They feather their own nests at our expense.
It is nepotism run wild.

Both parties need to reach across the aisle & work together to pass bills that are good for America. The GOP has taken a stance that punishes & slams people as RINO is they do not vote straight party lines. The Democratic party is not much better in this respect, but I will say that if it was not for Joe Manchin voting against huge spending beill that inflation would even be worse today. I say , thank you Senator Manchin for standing up to POTUS and your party to save USA.

There IS no negotiating with people who wish to destroy America. We have “reached across the aisle” far too much in the mistaken belief that our relinquishing our own wishes would be appreciated. That is naive. We NEED to begin to stand up strong for ourselves. We need the “Mean Tweeter” back in charge to regain American respect in this world !!!!

They no longer represent the people of their district or their respective states. They are too narcissistic to have any concern for another person, state or country. A Convention of States is necessary. With it, the people can set term limits, a balanced budget amendment. dissolve the Departments of Education and Housing and Urban Development, and repeal the 17th Amendment, to name a few. All of which are necessary to get this country back on the right path.

The Congress has abdicated its power to the deep state. IF they followed the Constitution as it is written then we would have more control over our liberty. Congress has become Big Business. They like the power and money.

Term limits would help. Then they could cut back on campaigning, and we could get rid of the senile!

Agreed on survey asking all the wrong questions.
When the people start being honest and have integrity in their homes, families and jobs, and then expect the same from their politicians only then is there any hope of change. We as a nation have turned away from God and then we wait for his blessing… not going to happen. Things are only going to get worse till we turn our hearts toward the one who created us, and ask for HIS forgiveness. Only then will HE heal our nation and restore us as a people

What is MOST wrong with Congress? Let’s see. We the people elect representatives from our congressional districts every two years and 1/3 of senators every 2 years for a term of 6 years. We the people, when polled, have rated Congress in the teens for a decade. We the people complain and try to list what is the MOST wrong with Congress, while re-electing incumbents who exemplify what is wrong with Congress. We the people seem to have given up on the idea that our elected legislators work for us and represent us. We the people have created a ruling class that is not motivated by representing our interests and protecting our freedoms and upholding our laws (or even abiding by those laws themselves). So, what’s wrong with Congress? Absolutely nothing. They are a representation of We the People. What’s MOST wrong with We the People and why are we not interested in answering that question?

I used to think like you.
Until I realized that the elections are rigged start to finish.

primaries – rigged
raising money – rigged
media coverage – rigged
getting on the ballot – rigged
debates – rigged
election rules – rigged
and if all else fails, counting the votes – rigged

That said there are alot of stupid people in the country who vote for non-sense. Pretty soon they won’t even have to rig elections as people seem to get dumber by the day.
