The DCCC Expects Democratic Representatives to Fundraise 4 Hours a Day, Every Day

"Welcome to town, new members of Congress. Now hit the phones."

For an incoming member of Congress still basking in the glow of electoral victory, it's a message that hits those in both parties hard -- the most direct indication that time in the people's chamber will be a bit different from the version taught in civics classes.

There are certain expectations of new members of Congress. According to the Democratic Congressional committee, they should prioritize raising money and just help their constituents later on...maybe. Cenk Uygur discusses this and other anti-productive, disheartening aspects of the money in politics problem.
