"The basic problem is simply that the Congress has become professionalized. It has interest much higher than ever existed before in remaining in office. It has a bureaucracy that is serving it. It is much more subject to the power of individualized pressure groups as opposed to the unorganized feelings of the majority of the citizens."
Justice Antonin Scalia
(1936-2016) American jurist, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States
American Enterprise Institute forum, “A Constitutional Convention: How Well Would It Work?” May 23, 1979
