I just went to the census population clock. It says the US population is 312,465,970. There are 435 voting Representatives in the House of Representatives. Therefore, each member represents a little over 700,000 people. No wonder why they don't listen to the people anymore. The number of Reps. was fixed via the Apportionment Act of 1911. Before that the numbers of Reps. grew periodically. If we, the people, had more representation, the House of Reps. would be harder to corrupt and be more accountable to the people.
