    I'm privileged to have Senator Whitehouse and Senator Jack Reed as my Senators and Congressman David Cicilline as my Rep.  I can honestly say that my values and political ideals are represented and represented well.  Senator Whitehouse comes from a very wealthy family but  similarly to Ted Kennedy and my onetime Senator Claiborne Pell who was also very wealthy he has chosen to represent the American middle class and the less fortunate.
    Several other names have been mentioned in the comments of Senators who actually do represent the same ideals but sadly there are the Cruz's and Cornyns of the world whose sole mission is to obstruct and and sabotage democracy.
    I am so fortunate.

      I am proud of the work that Senators Reed and Whitehouse do for the residents of my home state.  They are incredibly popular here and a lot of that has to do with the fact that they do speak for their constitutents.  Very reminiscent of Senator Pell.  I had the pleasure of meeting him once, when I won the Pell History prize at my high school. He was interested in what my plans were for the future.
