  •  We've long since arrived (5+ / 0-)

    at the point where Republican politicians can do absolutely whatever they want with no political cost.  They're unaccountable.

    It's so easy to dupe Republican voters that I could run as one myself and do it, like an Andy Kaufman routine. It requires no actual knowledge, no accomplishments, no qualifications, and no integrity.

    •  and the democrats are accountable? (1+ / 0-)

      how? where?

      Last I looked both sides are making out like banksters. I know you know about their healthcare and pension. Where is the accountability?

      What's the worst that could happen to, say, Harry Reid? Any idea what lobbying groups would pay Harry? Nancy? Durbin? Boehner, Cantor . . .. .  the list is endless.

      These people are S-E-T   for life, even if they're not already wealthy.

      Who really wants to solve this? Not any of these people - they make out regardless. Wanna change the system? Make congresscritters and senators for buy private health insurance and cancel their pensions. Jail anyone who lobbies in any form 5 years after retiring or losing their seat.

      Then watch change come. Never will, because this stuff is gravy-train
