Is Our Congress Bad Twenty-five years ago Richard F Fenno Jr said that people love their members of Congress but hate the Congress but at the end of the 1990s Fenno might be wrong because of some potential problems for the members of Congress and the Congress People do not love their members of Congress at all because the members of Congress do not know what people really want and also public lack of information about what they do by the modern mass media at the end of 1990s Another potential problem is that people still are not always satisfied with the length of time involved in passing a law at the Congress To compound the problems members of Congress tend to define their job in terms much different from those of general public and so people today dislike both the members of Congress and the Congress Representation was a key issue when the house and Senate were being designed However the members of Congress do not know what people want and the point is often made that Congress is not truly a representative body as it members are usually order richer and better educated than the average American Clearly the members of Congress do not represent women minority groups and the young in anything like their proportions of the population More than half the nations population are women but the 102nd Congress had only thirty one women members New York Time 1997 The members of Congress must strive to understand and represent the needs of the people They cannot ignore the disadvantage groups that feel unrepresented in the system Americans start to lose faith in their members of Congress when people feel that their representative can no longer represent them in the Congress A representative should be a reasonable facsimile of those whom he or she represents in another a representative acts as an agent just s an attorney represents a client
