The vast majority of Americans do not have a college degree so if a "diverse" organization doesnt represent that, it is being disingenuous.

Broke: we should have 51 female senators
Woke: we should have 10 senators without a high school diploma


@laser We also need to block people who make more than US$ 100,000 / year: 80% of the people makes less than that, and yet most senators and congress folk have that or a higher income.

I know people who claim to be poor when making $150K. Like, in what country do you live? I have neighbours who make less than $30K with 4 jobs, and barely can afford rent.

Let's get some people representing us who actually represent us.
