VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
Like I have always said, Republicans aren't the only rich people, Democrats, including Obama are millionaires, and take full advantage of all the tax loopholes and deductions like all other millionaires....
And their benefits, retirement pay, health care and on and on...if all of Americans had their health care we would all have good health and perfect teeth...and then they have the nerve to say they are fighting for the average americans....no, they are dearly trying to hang onto their jobs because they know they could never make that much money on the real world..
these people do not run our goverment they run their own goverment we elect them to office to work for us and then they sell their vote to the highest bidder why do you think they will spend millions to get in to office these people need to have report card to see how offen they show up to work they need to go on medicare and soical scecurty to se how the middle class lives what job can you leave your job and
get your pay and health care for life wake up people and see what is happening be for it is too late who voted this in while we were sleeping
We are lead to believe that the ballot and the sheer numbers of voters secure our rights as American citizens. Nothing could be further from the truth. To paraphrase Gore Vidal – It makes no difference who you vote for – the two parties are really one party representing one percent of the people with enough money to get them elected or re-elected.
We have been cajoled, by politicians, into believing that a campaign contribution is an inherent expression of free speech. At a contribution of a dollar at a time that argument might hold some water but with the campaign coffers of each party rising to the tune of ONE BILLION DOLLARS we are fast affirming that “what is good for Wall Street or General Motors is good for our nation.” Recent events have taught us otherwise
Our so-called representatives mock our Founding Father’s belief that they are only entrusted with the seat of power to do the will of the people. In the absence of justifiable and sustained citizen outrage we are affirming that choosing one’s government does not necessarily secure our freedom. Until “We the People” assert ourselves representative government is only a myth perpetuated by self-serving politicians in search of campaign funds.
Used to be 6 years term limit now the mofos enjoying our tax dollars with their teeth shine like a diamond.
KISS-KEEP IT SIMPLE ST____ -- It is called a "term limit" 2 or 2 times in each the (state/fed) House and Senate. This will stop a whole lot because new blood, high turn over. Then that have to write out the outline and goals for change- If they don't stick to they can not be re-elected.
Being a member of Congress should be a JOB, not a CAREER! These bozos make so much money - easily - that they never want to leave. THey scratch the back of whomever will keep them in office and keep their pockets lined with cash.
Term limits for all of 'em! Do your bit for eight years max, and then out you go. Get a job. Maybe they would be more concerned about the economy if they knew they would have to get a real job in eight short years.
