This study contains detailed briefing papers prepared by 16 representatives and senators, based on a series of informal discussion groups organized by the Center for Responsive Politics. The discussion groups were formed around four topics of particular interest to members: the reality of money, the use of members' time, the budget and legislative process, and the public's understanding of Congress. The discussions were based on a revealing survey of Congress, which polled 114 members of the House and Senate and 115 key staffers on their views of Congress, its chief strengths and weaknesses. The members describe their problems, such as too much time spent on fund raising for future campaigns, too little time to think and confer with their aides and colleagues, and too little home life. They attempt to outline workable solutions that will increase the effectiveness of Congress.
