    idea.  May I add that they also get 401Ks and have to use Social Security and Medicare in retirement.  Because honestly we can't afford to keep taking care of these wealthy people looking for hand-outs.  You give them one hand out and they'll keep coming back for more, they will never learn to stand on their own two feet if we keep taking care of them.    

    Oh, and for all the corporations that have taken jobs out of the country, could we make them pay a Medicare and Social Security tax to the fund for every employee they hire overseas where a job has been taken away from a American citizen.

      YES, here what WE tie:

      All politicians will have their pay tied to OUR Social Security

      All corporations will pay for off-shoring

      All corporate executives will have their total compensation tied to 100 times their lowest paid personnel.

      Tie it all in a bow!  MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

        more.  And if the CEO damages his company and it results in lost revenue and jobs then their golden parachutes are cancelled as well as their exit pay.  No more screwing the employees for big pay outs.

        How the hell did we get to this point, where unelected people are running our govenment and the elected people aren't and we have no representation except for good congress people like Mr. Grayson, and Senators like Bernie Sanders.  Always at this time of year I think about "Its a Wonderful Life," and realize we are in Potterville.

          And I would LOVE to see a remake of "It's Wonderful Life" and "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington"

          Things are as corrupt as they ever were

          And how did we get here?

          Complacency, but this Great Recession has certainly awakened the sleeping giant--our democracy!
