Why your congressman keeps being re-elected

Wow! Just when you think you’re the only one – a poll comes along!
Rasmussen Reports found that “53 percent of likely U.S. voters think it is fair to say that neither party in Congress is the party of the American people.” And a bit further down the article, “72 percent say it would be better for the country if most incumbents in Congress were defeated this November.”
Doesn’t it seem odd to you that in a democratic republic, a congress most voters believe does not represent them can be repeatedly re-elected?
How can this be? Isn’t this what democracy was designed to protect us from?
We all have our pet theories, of course, but I think there are a number of items that have come together over the last few generations to make non-representative democracy a reality. We might even be able to agree on what they are:
Are there solutions to this problem of the vast majority being unrepresented by their own government? (I guess they would be considered “threats” rather than “solutions” to those involved in the business of government.)
Only one that I know of:
Stop the money. An out-of-control, ever-expanding government bureaucratic workforce is not filled with employees who will work for nothing. Executive orders are only carried out by paid executive soldiers. Stop paying them.
Republicans in the House of Representatives hold the purse strings of government. Period. If they say, “no money,” then there is no money. Period.
But I digress. Why would anyone in D.C. care? “We the People” have no representation, really no nation, anymore.
