    You are a treasure to those of us who feel our voices don't count and certainly don't matter because we don't have $$$$$$$$ to access those who determine our future. Forget the fact we rarely gave our voices heard, but we rarely even get a seat in the door or near the table. We can't afford to hire an army of lobbyist or donate enormous amounts to campaigns that allow us the same chance to run in political leaders circles or to get their ear on a regular basis...unlike corporate and industry executives with deep deep pockets. It truly is an insulated world in which they live and reside, so far removed from those they rule over.

    It truly is only a representative democracy of/for/by the very wealthy.

    Sir, You speak for me and my family...my kids and their generation. We aren't looking for a a handout, just an equal playing field and equal voice....not dependent on our wealth.

    Thank you and your staff from the bottom of my heart for giving me a voice and a smidgen of hope.

    Government of, for, and by the wealthy corporate political ruling class elites. We are the 99%-OWS.
