Currently, congresspeople can be re-elected an unlimited number of times. This produces a large incentive for congresspeople to continually raise funds for their future re-election campaigns, which are VERY expense (in 2010, John McCain spent over $20-million dollars on his election campaign for the Senate).
As a result, many of our congresspeople do favors for special-interest groups in return for contributions to their re-election funds. This results in congresspeople representing special interest groups instead of their own constituents.
