Did you ever try and phone your congressman or congresswoman? Did you ever write a member of congress to ask a question?
If so, I bet that even if you got an answer it was slow to arrive.
There is a good reason for that: The politicians get to pick their own voters because they get to draw the boundaries of their districts.
Sometimes, however, the bureaucracy moves at record speed. When Speaker Boehner wanted to change the congressional map to move the Timken Company's headquarters into Jim Renacci's congressional district, it happened at lightning speed. 13 minutes to be exact.
Just 13 minutes to use taxpayer money to slice and dice and manipulate a northeast Ohio congressional district. Meanwhile, Congress did little to address the issues voters care about.
If you want to change Congress' priorities, vote YES on Issue 2. Issue 2 puts citizens in charge of drawing legislative boundaries.
