Congressman says don't "Clean House"
At a gathering in Phenix City, Alabama on Wednesday, U.S. Representative Mike Rogers (R-AL) told voters that it would be a mistake to throw out the entire Congress and start over. The 4-term Alabama Republican said that, while it wouldn't him personally if he lost his Congressional seat as part of a massive "Cleaning House" backlash by voters, the voters of his state would ultimately suffer if they did the same to the state's two Senators.

He said the bill would die in the Senate, and the Upper House would propose its own "more reasonable" bill.
