Welcome to the machine. But the good thing is, if you don't agree with the person you voted in, you can vote them out and get someone else in.
So, to sum up, your vote does indeed count but the person you vote in may not represent your interests all the time.

No it does not count anymore. Has everyone forgotten "Citizen's United vs. The Federal Election Commission"?
For anyone interested, here's a link: en.wikipedia.org...
Sorry it's from WIKI...
Anywho, explain to me how our vote no longer counts? Is it because your candidate didn't win and now you're bitter? Your vote is counted....period!

The 97% figure, was a figure which I personally remember was stated on meet the press, it was not for the healthcare bill it was for the TARP bailouts. I thought that a congress man was obligated, or at least should be, to vote the way his congressional district tells him to. He is there to represent the voice of the people!!!! Not what he feels is best!
