Lack of Representation in Congress

For those of you who don’t know me, I’m not a political insider. I vote every other year, but I don’t follow every move in congress. That being said, can someone please explain to me why Steve Israel doesn’t have a committee assignment?

From what I can tell, there isn’t a single other member of the house who doesn’t serve on a committee. What’s Steve’s excuse? According to Ballotopia page “Israel did not serve on any committees due to his position as the Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.”

SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?

He’s not representing my or my neighbors interests because he’s too busy campaigning for his party!!! Regardless of your political affiliation you should be outraged by this! How can he get away with this?
