The US Congress is no different than the Roman Senate Patronage system 2000 years ago. The elected officials need the support of the wealthy special interests to stay in office. Each member of Congress has a Chief of Staff who controls his calendar. If you are a big employer and employ an expensive lobbyist, they will meet with you early and often. If you represent an interest with little money or followers, then you will meet with the intern while the whale meets with the Congressman.

Every Congressman is a slave to his schedule which is set up by his minions to be full of special interest pleas. His only decision is to decide which special interests will get his support. The banks and big corporations control the lobbyists who are feeding the agenda to Congress, so nothing will change until campaign fund raising laws change.
