The Korean Legislature

I think Koreans take home the prize for having the most violent legislature, according to the Washington Post article here. Although the author argues that President Obama is lucky that he is not taunted constantly, I think the mannerism of U.S. politicians is a model standard to follow. If you think about it, government officials' salaries are paid with our taxes--we didn't pay them to mock and fight each other, but to make needed laws for our country. Legislators should think more about their responsibility as representatives of their constituents and their occupational duties and less about their personal benefits and partisan ties.
