Letters | Politics in an age of paralysis

In fund-raising frenzy, who has time to think about legislation?


I think that all Americans of every political persuasion should be very concerned with the sample daily schedule that was distributed at an orientation of new members of Congress (“They go to lead, but courting cash is now job 1,” Page A1, May 12). There is no time set aside for members of Congress to read material and comprehend the impact of their votes regarding legislation that has a major impact on this country and the individuals who live here.
