My simple persons take?
Anyone can run for that BUT first, all folk running for any seat in the entire Govt - even President hopefuls - MUST live a full year with no access
to their money, homes, insurance, nothing. They must work a min wage job, find a place to live, and get by that way. Find out how it is personally.
Only then can they run for whatever seat they're looking for.
Only then. Walk a legitimate year in the middle/lower class shoes. One small year. We do it year after year after year. One measely year is all you
have to do, hopefuls. Go to the ER when you're sick. Decide between rent, food and bills - or meds for your suddenly sick child. ONLY then may you run
for a Seat.
I really think that would make a HUGE difference. They're still wealthy - just have zero access to the finest of living while doing that year. Anyone
caught cheating is out of the running. Period.
Perhaps a little empathy from 'been there/done that' would actually DO something positive for once.
