Most of the time they vote on random BS to help with re-election. A few senators have come out and publicly stated that the amount of time they spend on major issues is marginal.

I think there needs to be significant reform in the way that the [congressional] election process is carried out, both financially and time-wise. Congress will continue to get less effective until that happens...or until special interests assume a dominate influence.
