Reform Congress

I wish there was a way I could wave a magic wand and put back when people were respectful of each other, and the Congress was working for the good of the country and not just along party lines. Someday there will be great people, great elected representatives who will say, ‘enough of this nonsense, let’s be the kind of legislature the United States should have.’ I hope that day will come when I’m still alive.

- Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice
