The Truth Comes From Unexpected Sources

John Conyers, an entrenched Congressman of 47 years from Michigan doesn’t understand why the newly elected Representatives in the House would <gasp> remain committed to pledges they give their constituents.

“This is the first time that I can remember being confronted by members
of the Congress, my colleagues, who say, ‘I don’t care if I get
reelected or not, I want to cut the budget by $100 billion or
whatever,’” said a bewildered Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), who was first
elected to Congress in 1964. “I’ve never seen that kind of a member
before. … It’s a dangerous point of view from my perspective.”

What Conyers forgets or perhaps has never understood, words spoken to others have meaning.  When someone makes promises to individuals or constituents you are bond by your honor to uphold those pledges.
Of course  individual’ like Conyers, who have drank long from the straw of Congressional power, forget that WE-THE-PEOPLE  control government not the other way around.  They are elected to serve to represent us.. period.
Perhaps honor or if you prefer integrity is lost on some members of Congress?
