Why am I paying for the candidates to campaign and sponsor pointless bills?

    Four of the five people on the list of top people missing votes in Congress are apart of the 2008 presidential campaign. They include John McCain (missing 64.1% of votes), Barack Obama (missing 45.9% of votes), Hillary Clinton (missing 32.2% of votes), and Joe Biden (missing 30.8% of votes) The other on the list is Tim Johnson, Dem of SD, who had medical problems that are proper excuses for it.

    I am not a donor of any of these campaigns. Why is my tax money going to their congressional salaries/benefits where they are not even representing their respective states in Washington? Sure, its only $169,300 each, but, hey, it's wasted money and voters are not being represented in Washington while they're out galavanting and campaigning. Unbelievable.
