    Do your best. Move the country forward and stand strong. America needs you to work for the country and not for your political career.

    There should be a law ... that says your oath of office outweighs any other professional oath that you may have sworn allegiance to. If a member of the US military swears an oath to an independent agency and puts the interests of that agency ahead of his/her sworn military duty to serve and protect, then that individual would be subject to being charged with treason and other crimes. So how come we do not hold the US Congress to the same standard?

    This photo means nothing for me as long as they work for the good of USA leaving the bickering at their homes for American Middle Class. Pass strict immigration,foreigners are abusing this system.

    Let's hope this bunch can reverse an ongoing trend and actually compromise. Have to say I am not holding my breath. Roll on 2014 and hopefully we can get this country back on track.

    Dear America~

    here is a list of puppet politicians you "voted" in.
    They, like the puppets before them, are all bought and paid for by the Corporations.
    Nothing will change
    But hey at least you have the appearance of Freedom right?

    What a crock of horse hockey.
    Being an elected politician in this country is the ONLY profession that you can TOTALLY fail at and still get paid 100K a year.

    I got an idea.
    Let's demand that ALL politicians get federal minimum wage until they get this stuff fixed.
    You'll see how fast things change then.

    If CNN is going to count Member-Appointee, and now Senator Tim Scott (R-SC), they should probably include Senator Brian Schatz (D-HI). While *technically* not a freshman Senator, he was appointed on December 27th to fill Inouye's seat and is a de facto freshman.

    Also, the list forgot the independent freshman Senator from Maine, former governor Angus King.

    Do we really need 435 House members, each with a contingent of lobbyists and pork spending agenda? Can we get by with half that?

    I hope that these people are more willing to work with each other and get things done. We need more of cooperation and compromise in this next Congress.

    Depending on how they do , whether they will last to return again,. I hope they see what a mess they gotten themselves into and have the courage to act on values, not be puppets of their parties.
