  •  Polls of support don't matter to those we elect, (5+ / 0-)

    either. They didn't matter when the majority supported a public option for healthcare, supported withdrawal from both Afghanistan and Iraq, supported NO CUTS to social security or medicare and supported taxing the wealthiest 1%. None of it matters when our elected officials are, themselves, either part of or bought off by, the wealthiest in this country.

    Obama said to us, 'the "fat cats" won't donate to me, I need all your small donations'. And we responded overwhelmingly with millions of dollars, many from people who could scarcely afford $5 bucks. And for what? More tax cuts for the richest people in the country? $4 million more in gift tax exemptions to ensure the painless transfer of wealth for the 1%? Weak financial regulation that will not stop TBTF and a healthcare bill that actually leaves more people uninsured?

    We've seen what's behind the curtain. It won't work anymore.
