Those in power must keep themselves relevant.

The worst thing that ever happened to this country is the advent of a sitting congress........

who is always sitting. Many states have Legislatures that only meet for about 4-5 months every other year.

During the time between meetings the state itself debates the necessity of certain things and then when the legislature is finally in session only the most important topics are addresses and their is not much time to address these concerns.

Unlike congress who is in session year round they just meddle and meddle and meddle and now you got legislation that is intended to fix legislation that was designed to fix other broken legislation which was broke from other legislation.

Congress will never stop meddling and will never be convinced that all 535 of them can climb into a giant bucket and lift themselves UP TO GOD.
