I don't trust anyone who has been in public office more than 12 years. Congress was never intended to be a career and I dislike career politicians. They are self serving, inveterate nest featherers, pathological liars, professional pickpockets and lean toward imperial arrogance, considering the electorate an unnecessary irritant and an impediment to their continued self awarded life of power and luxury. They inevitably forget who brought them to the dance and why they are there.
