When was the last time a politician was recalled (or even primaried) because of how they voted on a health care bill?
I think never?

My point is that We The People have the tools to crack the whip, but we aren't using them.

Congress has an approval rating of about 15% but 99% of congressmen get reelected every election .

people are stupid and lazy.  The tick the box next to a name they recognize, or they don't want to bother researching a new person.  The fact that someone like McCain is returned time after time is just  mind boggling to me. 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
