    It is a cult-like boiler room on Capitol Hill where sitting members of Congress, frankly I believe, are compromising the dignity of the office they hold by sitting in these sweatshop phone booths calling people asking them for money. And their only goal is to get $500 or $1,000 or $2,000 out of the person on the other end of the line. It’s shameful. It’s beneath the dignity of the office that our voters in our communities entrust us to serve.

    This is the consequence of the 17th Amendment, which required the popular election of U.S. Senators. Originally, Senators were to be appointed by their respective State legislatures to represent their state's interests at the national level. Now, out-of-state interests pay millions of dollars to control this process.
