    Republicans shill for oil and Wall Street, Dems shill for tech and Wall Street (but a bit less, despite them bankrolling Obama's 2008 campaign...)

    I mean, Max Baucus is the personification of this very problem of money in politics and the revolving door between public service and private influence-peddling industry, and he's a Democrat.

    But the most recent stories coming out (Virginia, this guy, Bachmann) are tending to be Republican, and given they're running the House and thus all the committeee chairs are from the GOP, and we haven't gotten much at all done in Wall Street reform / financial regulation -- they deserve this attention.

    Deficits don't matter, jobs do.

      out. I just don't want the message to become too partisan it loses credibility that way. Don't get me wrong this diary is well written and definitely a story that should be heard.
