    Highly Recommend

    Robert Draper takes you through the actions of many major House of Representative and Senators of the 112th Congress, their personal history, their thoughts, and resulting votes. You learn why they have earned the reputations as one worst Congresses on record. Some of the more controversial members such as Anthony Weiner and Alan West are reviewed in detail reveling many unknown facts. One learns that many members of the Tea Party play childish games with senior members in an effort to defeat votes on many major issues facing our country. Issues such as raising the “Debt Ceiling” debates are covered in detail.

    Had this suspicion from the start

    Great book. The Republicans should be ashamed of the things they are doing at the expense of our middle class. Shame on them! They are a bunch of racists. I could go on but people should read this book, it is essential. It will open your eyes.

    Great book on 2010 Freshmen & relations to senior members.

    This is an amazing book by Robert Draper. How he was able to get so many "actually" quotes and behind the scene conversations is astounding. A MUST book for everyone who is interested in how our "representatives" interact between each other. Being formally from South Carolina I was really taken how the these freshmen held tightly to their conservative principals even when the pressure to conform to their leadership's directions.
