11 Demoncrats 8 Repreichans, they goes the concept "The Democrats are for the common folk"
The problem is we keep re-electing them, term limits nice try but the Supreme Ct. struck it down, even through the Executive branch serves with term limits, go figure, We should let the lobbyists take over they already run the country. Here is a novel idea, if you run from Cleveland you can only take funds from the people in your district, since these are the people you are working for, and no company donations a congressman ah! works for the people not a company.

also stop all the all the aide to countrys for juat one year that would clear the national dept ;
GET RID OF ALL THE USELESS GOVERMENT OFFICES<
I've said for years that we are governed by a small cadre of very rich elitists. And I get hammered for it. People would rather argue about the Dems and Reps than open their eyes and see that money controls us in the form or about 530 plus Congressmen and women, and the Supreme Court.
The Clintons went into the WH 20 years ago, worth a couple hundred thou....now they are worth several hundred million! How did that happen? It is called gratuities and scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.
No average or poor person can run for Congress. You have to be rich and have connections to do it. Once there, you get richer because you are doing favors for all your buds back home.
Any talk of changing the pecking order is just hot air. Only a nasty revolution is going to change anything.
The small individual means nothing to these elitists. Just someone to climb over to get to the top.
Almost all didn't make their wealth in Congress. They had their wealth before office. It takes a lot of money (w/o campaign finance reform) or very wealthy connections to run. If there were term limits, only the extremely wealthy could afford to run. I don't know what % are Democrats, but at least the vast majority of Dems are calling for higher taxes on the wealthy and lower taxes on the 98%. In 2010, 93% of all income gains went to the top 1%. Stop listening to Fox lies and start listening to PBS where you can get programs that have various parties discussing issues. Ex: Newhour (M-F), Moyers & Co (billmoyers.com), McLaughlin, Washington Week - many on Friday and also on web. Other great PBS programs - Frontline & Independent Lens. Independent Lens did a program on "Park Ave." Without limiting campaign funding and giving huge tax breaks to the wealthy and allowing major corporations to give unlimited funds to campaigns, the US is headed toward an "Oligarchy." Basically what the US was like before the Great Depression.
you dont see any middle class in congress whats up with that,and why are the jews running this country uhm WHY..
