4. Almost all of the senators are millioniares

and it costs as much to run for the senate nowadays as it did to run for president just a few cycles ago. These are very wealthy people beholden to even wealthier interests that bankroll their campaigns. Our self-interests are not their self-interests. We can hope for a measure of compassion from them, but absent pressure or some kind, they will protect the interests of money.
