“The problem... is that most members of Congress don't pay attention to what's going on.” 
-John McCain-

John Sidney McCain III (born August 29, 1936) is the senior United States Senator from Arizona. He was the Republican nominee for president in the 2008 United States election. McCain followed his father and grandfather, both four-star admirals, into the United States Navy. He retired from the Navy as a captain in 1981 and moved to Arizona, where he entered politics (, accessed on March 28th, 2012).  

I took the quote above because it has relevance with this fifth weekly topic, that is Congress. From those quote, McCain underlined that the most members of Congress do not pay attention to what is going on in US. Most of them just fighting for their own interests without caring the interests of the citizens. Their own interests seen more important than the interests of the citizens itself.

I personally agree with those quote. Nowadays, most of politicians just caring to their own interests. Whereas, they elected by citizens to represent the interests of citizens. When they did champaign, they promised to the citizens to fight the public welfare. But, when they elected, they often forget with their promises. This condition is being faced by our nation, Indonesia. Many of our politicians, elites, and decision makers  forget with their promises. When they occupying the important position in government, they will do everything to maintain their power and sometimes they forget about public welfare. In other hand, many  citizens still live in poverty. That is truly ironic. As soon as possible, we have to restructure this condition. We can!
