President Biden says Fox's John Roberts lied when he said Biden was not the first to lower insulin costs.

That would be good but does not really resolve the issue.   There are plenty of candidates that win with less money.   Money is an advantage and it should be taken away from Incumbents.   But they have name recognition and can raise more money just from that.   The answer is term limits but Congress will never go for that and neither will State legislatures.  Hence we are where we are.   Surprise!  It was Congress that initiated term limits for the Pres, but they didn't do that for themselves at that same time.

Given that the work that is attributed to our representatives is more the product of unelected staffers, bureaucrats, K Streeters, lobbyists, etc., I’m not sure the lure of money and celebrity will change that much, but it’s worth a shot.

Plenty?  The % of incumbents that win is pretty high.
