"Representative" of Whom?

Theoretically, Congress represents the people of the US, district-by-district.

District-by-district, American citizens are paying a LOT for home heating and gasoline.

So what does QueenNancy's House propose?

A provision that takes about 8.8 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 300 million barrels of oil out of production in Wyoming, according to the Bureau of Land Management. The energy resources walled off by this bill would nearly match the annual production levels of our two largest natural gas production states — Alaska and Texas.

Eat cake, you stinking proles!

Rummaging around in the 'net, we find the following text:

...that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government

Umnnnhhh....heated housing is a component of "life," right?
