    It is not the function of the federal (national) government to solve issues of a local nature. What are the politicians within Pennsylvania doing to improve this situation? They are the ones responsible.

      The political dynamic in Philadelphia in particular isn’t quite that simple. You are right about the limits of Federal government in general. But in this area, failure to lead on the Federal level leaves chaos beneath. It could be considered a failure to lead by example, and a failure to serve one’s constituency. Bluntly, the people of this Congressional District need someone that gives a damn about them, and is willing to fight for them. Featherman is the only one they have for the moment. The rest of their civic leaders aren’t in it to be leaders – they are in it for the perks.
