KyleMcCarthy's insight:
Is this Karma? A member Congress who has ignored the concerns of young people for years, only to push through legislation which would hurt them more. Perhaps we're seeing and end to this as students, former students, and others are fed up and have taken to social media to nominate Kline for the worst member in Congress. Now, he has made it to the last four. Will he be voted the worst over all? I believe yes! Karma is a beautiful thing!

#FireKline: Rep John Kline Makes it to the Final Four of Bill Maher’s #FlipADistrict Contest!
KyleMcCarthy's insight:
Earlier this year, we at StudentDebtCrisis.org nominated Representative John Kline for Bill Maher’s #FlipADistrict campaign, which aims to find the worst representative in the country and oust them from office. On his show, Real Time, Maher is calling on viewers to take to social media to nominate and vote for the worst members of Congress. According to the Real Time blog, once the “worst” member of Congress has been decided, “we will spend the year periodically looking at the district, meeting the entrenched incumbent, introducing his fresh-faced challenger, getting to know the people they want to serve, and generally doing our level best to flip that district.” To date, Rep John Kline has received the most amount of votes and is the first to advance to the Final Four of Bill Maher’s #FlipADistrict Contest.
