It does, though. Gerrymandering also effects state level districts and thus state control.

Get a wad of $50s and $20s (do not carry it all them on you, separate them singularly). Whenever you’re bored, go to Walmart and look for someone hesitating over every selection or stand at the front looking for people putting things back or only buying food (because other things are not covered by food stamps).
