The US Senate
A joint study of CBS news and the National Journal reports that, based upon congressional voting records, the US Senate elected in 1982 had 60 -- that's 60 -- moderates whose voting records could not be predicted by simple party affiliation. By 1994, there were only 36 moderates in the Senate. After the 2002 elections, there were only nine moderates in the Senate. And finally, in 2010, there were no moderates in the US Senate. Say, you know, I wonder if that might have something to do with the problems this country is facing in getting the government to govern ?
