Crisis of Confidence: America’s Government Losing Faith in Out-of-Touch Constituents

Guest Opinion
By Senator Arlen Specter (D-PA)
and Kathleen Sebelius, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services

Over two hundred years ago, America’s founding fathers established a constitutional republic based on the audacious notion that the interests of its citizens would be best served by a wise body of their democratically-elected representatives. In the two centuries that have since transpired, that bold experiment has largely been a success. But we should also realize our system only works when the interests of voters and their government are in harmony. Unfortunately, recent evidence suggests that America’s hard-working hometown legislators are feeling the pinch from a fickle and increasingly out-of-touch voter class who no longer serves our needs.

The rest is here. Damn that’s funny, but all too close to the mark.

One thing’s for sure — fewer and fewer politicians will be holding townhall meetings with us out-of-touch kooks in coming months.
