People act like Congress is broken as if it is "they" and not "us." Congress is broken only because our society is broken. They are our representatives. They mainly act the way they do because they think they are representing the majority of their constituents. After all, they want to keep their jobs..

Our society is hugely diverse, but we refuse to act like it. Instead, we all function under the basic assumption that everyone else should be like us, and if they're not, we'll try to make them with the force of law.

We need to move from an us vs. them mentality to a family mentality. We're all stuck with each other. We don't have to like each other, but we do have to live with each other.

Solution: Stop voting for polarizing/-ed people. Stop being so polarized yourself. Listen to people more; argue less. Accept the fact that we won't always see things the same way or approve of what others think and do. Find ways to live together and minimize interference.
