Which of the following best completes the passage below?

"Government" does not exist as an independent entity defining policy. Instead there exists a group of democratically elected pragmatists sensitive to the electorate, who establish policies that will result in their own reelection. Therefore, if public policy is hostile to, say, environmental concerns, it is not because of government perversity but because elected officials believe that _____

(A) environmentalists would be extremely difficult to satisfy with any policy however environmentally sound
(B) environmental concerns are being accommodated as well as public funds permit
(C) the public is overly anxious about environmental deterioration
(D) the majority of voters vote for certain politicians because of those politicians' idiosyncratic positions on policy issues
(E) the majority of voters do not strongly wish for a different policy

The answer follows from the argument given in the passage that "...there exists a group of democratically elected pragmatists sensitive to the electorate, who establish policies that will result in their own reelection"

Therefore, the only choice that explains the actions of the policy-makers is that the majority of the voters do not wish for a different policy
