Should one group of lawmakers be bound by another group of lawmakers who are no longer in office?

What if the taxpayers want their money spent elsewhere and direct their representatives to do it? Is that not their right to have their views represented?

When a company's owners decide their money is better spent bonusing the CEO than building a new factory why are they wrong? It's their money.
By their very definition they can not be, plus almost every state constitution clearly states this.
