Congress serves as a representative body. Explain both what this term means. Then explain how well or poorly the US Congress is doing as a representative body. In what ways does the US Congress successfully represent the American people. In what ways does it fall short of successfully representing the American people? Your answer should consider not only the idea of representation via inputs (elections, etc.), but also representation via outputs (i.e. policy). You should thus consider not only who gets to Congress and the process by which they get there (campaigns & districting), but also the rules and procedures by which laws and policies are made, including the importance of party leadership and committees.
