Hey, Remember Congress?

It’s time for everyone’s favorite game, “Hey, Remember Congress?”!! That’s when we put aside the fact that our attention spans have been bore-sighted on the nonstop campaign shitshow and instead spend about 90 seconds thinking about the people we already elected and have been paying upwards of $175,000 a year to represent us.
