Maybe she’ll forget she’s bought by corporate interests and start representing her constituents.


From 1950 to 1980, members of Congress were, on average, 50-55 years old. The Senate tracked older, hovering around 60. In 1980, the average age of Congresspeople and Senators dropped to all time lows, before reaching an all time high in 2013. It’s slowly tracked downward since, but the country is still overwhelmingly represented by a sclerotic and aged ruling class of Boomers that refuse to hand over the reigns of power. Feinstein is a symptom, not the disease.


We need a maximum ages for each office just like we have minimum ages and we need term limits on everything especially the Supreme Court.


I don’t think society should be governed by people who remember watching new episodes of I Love Lucy.


Terribly sorry to hear that, but the truth is she’s been in office since 1992. That shouldn’t be allowed in my opinion. It’s also worth noting she’s the 4th wealthiest senator with a net worth of over $50 million…
