    I truly respect you and that you are the kind of politician that once made this country great, but the level of corruption in Washington, within both parties, is rendering our democracy into a cesspool of corruption for those in office to fill their pockets, cushion themselves, and cater to the 1% which the majority of politicians are a part of anyway or hope to be.  The people no longer matter, that is why OWS is growing.

    What ever the people have left as safety nets seems to be considered only as bargaining tools of the politicians to stick austerity on the people so they don't have to suffer for their lack of actually doing their jobs they were elected to do.

    They will cave and throw the elderly and disabled into turmoil and the streets because frankly they don't give a damn as long as it doesn't effect them or their families.  Most the politicians in Washington are there to gain power and wealth for themselves.  Our political system is the fastest way to become wealthy in this country and they have unlimited access to wealth in Washington.  To believe that there is actually a party that represents the people anymore is to believe in the Sandman to help you sleep.
