    If they weren't allowed to buy their congress critters would they have the negotiating powers that they do?

    No, they would not.

    Just because something is the status quo does not make it a decent and humane thing.

    As for the public option, well that remains to be seen.

    If you can't fix it with a hammer, then you've got an electrical problem.

      they will always be allowed. Write new laws and they find a new way, and those laws are guaranteed to have loopholes. As far as I can see they can't help but get what they want. They've been the only ones in the fight for generations.

        and we continue to have bankruptcies and foreclosures, as well as increases in food insecurity, topped off with continued job losses, I guess we will all have the opportunity to see just how well that works out for them, won't we.

        Maybe they will get so fat that someone will decide to fetch a fork and knife throw them in the pot and eat them for dinner.
