Who Does Your Representative Represent?

From the Washington Post comes an article about how Republicans are perfectly willing to screw their constituents in favor of cozying up to big business. And that just now big business has Social Security "reform" in its crosshairs and is willing to spend hundreds of millions of dollars to have themselves a turkey shoot.

This isn't surprising, of course. But what I'm asking for is that folks who support the Republican agenda (which has nothing to do with democracy) stop and think about how they're willingly allowing themselves to be disenfranchised and lose any voice and, ultimately, say about what happens to this country. Is that what you want? Do you really think that's a good thing somehow?
