    Watergate reforms by a conservative Rehnquist court, and our democracy has been paying the price ever since.

    I would like to believe all the onerous legislation signed by Democrats in the last forty years (I'm looking at you, Bill), would have had a different outcome without that landmark ruling on behalf of the 1%.

    Welfare Reform, repeal of Glass-Stegall, "Credit Modernization", 1996 Telecommunications; the whole triangulating strategy and Obama's compromises the last four years have as much to do with assuring the flow of cash to survive will not be adversely influenced as anything else.

    Until this is resolved no issue, no matter the import, will be decided on the merits or needs of the American people if it interferes with the wants of our oligarchy that finances it all.  

    "extravagant advantage for the few, ultimately depresses the many." FDR
