Homework Help: American Government

Posted by Karen on Wednesday, November 4, 2009 at 9:15pm.

What influences might cause a member of the House to vote against the wishes of the people in his or her district?


I have this question for a study question in government and I'm pretty lost. The only things I can think of are money issues or because they were influenced by a committee. Or maybe it was in the best interest for their party. Or they're doing the Speaker a favor. But all of those sound lame :(
