Re: Debt Ceiling Solutions That will never happen. I'd be a fool to think it would. But there are things we can do to make sure that there are more people who represent their electorate's interests. We need to get over the idea that going to punch holes in tickets once every two years will help anything and start participating regularly and more directly in our government. And for the cases where indirect participation (representation) is more efficient, becoming a representative shouldn't be contingent on bending over backwards for financial sponsors.
