What is the role of a US Representative?

== == A United States Representative is supposed to be the common persons voice in the United States government. The House Of Representatives joins the Senate in forming the legislative arm of our government, that part which writes and passes laws. Because a Representative only serves a two year term, it was thought that they would be more in touch with the average person, as opposed to Senators, who serve a six year term, and are more likely to be older, more affluent, and removed from everyday life.
