    The core of the problem is that our "political representatives" do not work for the middle class, they are hired guns for their patrons--the wealthy.

    How to fix that?  Starting with your proposals above is a good idea.

    I think we need to wake up from our childhood dreams of what a Senator or Congressman is and realize that they are largely no more honorable than the hired guns the cigarette companies used to keep their money machines well oiled.

    Likewise, we need to understand that the exceptions to this hegemony of hired guns are REAL people's representatives like Bernie Sanders who should be recognized as super heroes!
