something that bugs me a bit

I wish politicians would stop referring to the American people as if we were a monolith of support or dissent for a given topic, bill, idea, etc.

I have only recently started paying much attention to Washington D.C., and I am aware that this is, likely, not a new development...but it just bugs me when I hear things like:

"... I would once again encourage our Democratic friends to...support the kind of spending cuts that the American people have asked for..." - Mitch McConnell

Again, not the idea of spending cuts that necessarily bugs me, but rather the constant use of "the American people want/don't want" by R and D politicians.
