    but it's not going to happen.  There are 300 million people in our country, many who are completely qualified to get us out of this mess, but in D.C. it's an exclusive Merry Go Round.  People get on for a while, look important giving speeches about why things can't get done for main street, then they get off to get a lobbying job or work on Wall Street.  There are very few who don't succumb to the lure of $$$.   Studies done show that empathy drops as income rises.  I believe it.  Obama never speaks of poverty...like it doesn't exist.  I find that appalling and shocking.
