    ...because I can definitely relate to your sentiments, in general (and I have, pretty much ever since I first started following your posts here)...however, Daschle and Johnson, when it comes to health care and Wall Street (more specifically, the TBTF banks), respectively (and specifically), they don't exactly "...fight on the side of everyday people..."

    It's pretty much common knowledge that Daschle is one of the most highly paid lobbyists for Big Pharma in the entire country. And, Johnson's pretty much in the pocket of the large banks and credit card originators (of course, South Dakota is a very well-known home to the "preemptive," everyday, interest-gouging realities of the latter group).
