    Sadly, our conservative law-makers have little choice but to act as handmaidens for the wealthy interests.

    See, in this country, we allow the wealthy to buy the law-makers they want.  All those conservative law-makers who vote repeatedly for tax bills that won't pass or repeal ACA bills that won's pass owe their current office in congress to wealthy interests that insist on reduced taxes and less regulation.  Were these law-makers to vote for anything else, they would quickly find themselves without the financial support of the wealthy interests and soon out of office.

    Our law-makers don't have to worry about "the will of the people", they only have to worry about the wishes of their wealthy donors.  It is the wealthy donors that determine who will win office, not "the will of the people".

    That are law-makers are willing to go to such lengths to embaress themselves so publicly shows how strong is the influence of the wealthy interests.
