If Senators were still

If Senators were still constitutionally appointed as our founders intended, those "federal" funds would have remained primarily at the level of state government and never left home for the robbers in the District of Columbia. The robbers in the District of Columbia simply redistribute a minor portion of the confiscated wealth to the people with strings attached. Again, state governments are accountable to the people and therefore appointed US Senators are INDIRECTLY accountable to the people as well. Thankfully, the accountability of state government will mainly fall to the INFORMED and active segment of the people while the UNINFORMED and inactive couch potatoes stay at home.
