The 535 elected U.S. Senators and Representatives carry with them the desires and opinions of over 200 million Americans. Congress is often accused of being out of touch with the people-but what does the system demand of them? Is there enough time in the day to satisfy all of the varied interests and mandates of the job? This program explores the world through the eyes of those we elect. From the political meetings to the social functions to the time spent campaigning, this program examines what politicians really do-and have to endure-in Washington. Among those featured on the program are Rep. Tim Roemer (D-IN), and Rep. Sue Myrick (R-NC)
