  •  Has nothing to do with popularity (0+ / 0-)

    Popularity is not the issue.  

    The issue is which legislator or candidate is willing to dance to the tune of the wealthy and corporate interests.

    Why are all the representatives screaming with one voice for tax cuts EVEN as they warn of budget deficits?  Because the wealthy donors want that.  Why do all the legislators vote to invade Iraq?  Because the wealthy interests want them to.  Why does congress refuse to investigate and prosecute fraud on Wall St. and in the banking industry?  Because Wall St. and the banking inudustry give money generously to members of congress.
