Being in the school system, I have something Congressional leaders should try. Instead of pushing back and forth with "I want and I am not budging," try having everyone in the same room, then have them put their heads down on their desks, and raise their hand if they want to vote how the people who put them there want them to vote. No peeking at their neighbor to see how they voted, that's cheating. Maybe "the people" will keep them in office if they start representing them. It's just an idea.
