      Toxic cynicism isn’t super healthy. Research some members of Congress to find the ones who are in it for the good of people. My senators from Oregon seem to really want to help. I’m a huge AOC fan

      Anytime FDA protects beef or milk interests, sure.

      Some Supreme Court members are in it for the cash.

      It’s also really hard to tell what your own members would do if they had full control of their chamber
