Just More Of The Same From Kevin McCarthy?

Members of the GOP lead U.S. House of Representatives voted on Thursday to make Kevin McCarthy their new majority leader. It's difficult for me to understand the politics that went into that decision – but it's safe to say that even after voters sent Eric Cantor packing, the rank and file of elected Republicans in the House of Representatives are sticking to their own pecking order. Maybe it's just me, but it seems like most Members of Congress have a dislike for the voters who sent them to Washington. Sadly, I think many of them believe they are smarter than the average American and that is why they do crazy stuff like not listening to the voters back home. Someone told me the other day that they wished no Member of Congress could run for reelection. While that will never happen, it is possible for voters to develop their own term limits law by just refusing to vote for incumbents anymore. That's what the people in Eric Cantor's district did a few weeks ago and maybe they are onto something.
