The US is a democratically elected Republic. Which means that the people elect representatives that have the power to vote on issues. The representatives are to listen to and represent the constituents with their vote. Representatives are not to vote solely on the basis of their opinion or gut feeling. To do so makes them a "noble class" and therefore acting unconstitutionally at best and treasonous at worst.
