More evidence that our democracy is broken

There is a new poll on the public's position on tax cuts. You can find the entire poll here and a summary here, but I want to just make one point:

More people want to let all the cuts expire (27%),
(a position held by zero Senators)

than want to extend the top tax cuts permanently (19%).
(a position held by the majority party in the Senate)

This is a fundamental breaking of our representational system.

Could it be related to Senators, themselves, falling into that top tax bracket? I'll keep waiting for the millionaire reporters and pundits to ask them that one . . . .
