Alright, so I've literally just discovered that Congress changes every two years! This whole time I thought that the Presidential election every four years is the only election which takes place on that day! I thought that Congress only changes every four years in the midterm elections, two years into a Presidential term - so I was thinking that the next one would be held in 2022 four years after the 2018 midterms. How is this anything other than TOTAL insanity? How can any President get anything done in two years? Here in Australia, we have a federal election every three years in which a Prime Minister is elected as well as our Congress equivalent - The Parliament of Australia. Some people believe that three years is too short! Well we have one more year than the US! So explain to me why it makes sense to change Congress every two years! Vote too in the poll above!
