Who represents us in Washington

February 14, 2020

To the Editor:
After what we have seen and heard from the lawyers in the Senate and the House of Representatives during the impeachment trial, there is something we all need to think about.
Forty percent of the members of Congress are lawyers. .04% of the general American population are lawyers. Wouldn’t it be great if we had more hard-working men and women in our country representing us in Washington instead of these slick-talking lawyers in both parties who represent such a small percentage of our population?
