  •  It is about the $$$ (0+ / 0-)

    both Houses of Congress are filled with people that have to raise vast amounts of $$$ each and every week. Even in my district that is a safe D, Courtney raises $10k or more each week, so they all try to find angles to use to raise the money. The filibuster helps them raise money as does the reform effort help others to raise money. They also spend time on what they will do if they are kicked out. Who wants to hire a looser? Think about how insider trading was legal for these people up to very recently. The system is rigged and a game where only a very few are working for the general welfare and most for themselves.

    Plato's " The Cave" taught me to question reality.
