Many people say that Congress isn’t doing its job because they’re not compromising to pass bills. Even though I hate Congress and politicians more than the next guy, I will make this point. The only reason why Congress is gridlocked is because the people they represent are gridlocked. Is it so strange and bad that Congress represents the will of the people, at least in this way, if not in others? Even if you don’t like the gridlock, don’t act surprised. It actually makes sense considering that the purpose of Congress is to reflect the people.
