Scott Santens is criticizing Congress for passing the American Health Care Act (AHCA) in 2017. He argues that this legislation, which aimed to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, demonstrates that Congress no longer truly represents the interests and will of average voters in the United States.

According to Santens, the AHCA showed that Congress actually represents the financial donors and groups such as corporations and lobbyists “who pay for elections” through campaign contributions.

In other words, Santens believes politicians are more accountable to their donors rather than citizens, since the AHCA was widely unpopular publicly but still passed due to influence from moneyed special interests.
