I think Congress has just about the right amount of power – not too little, not too much. It is decisive and influential, without being overbearing. The main issue I see with this branch is that although its members should represent their constituents’ interests, often their own personal agendas and other influences prevail. It is also not clear to me what their position is on some of the main issues we are dealing with in today’s modern society (despite our increased access to information). Nevertheless, I think it is a much more effective and fair form of government when compared to other nations because it provides the opportunity for the people to have a voice.
