Care for the Whole Citizenry

Why does our Congress look down upon the needy and the poor? Why does their legislative process hurt the most vulnerable members of the population the most? Why does the Congress just favor the rich people, the big manufacturers and the large donors? Why does Congress eye people's earned social security benefits trying to compel people to turn these benefits into stocks on the open market? 

Members of Congress are supposed to care for the whole citizenry, not only for a chosen few. Can we separate wheat from chaff among our lawmakers? Can we vote against those who are poor in heart, mind and soul? Can we vote for those who value the well being of our entire community, including the unemployed and the underprivileged?
