My thoughts about the dysfunction of politics in the United States.

Here we go again . . .
The Republicans are Filibustering the Finance Reform Bill. This makes sense as their backers are the rich who are making gobs of money from the current system. Why would they want to change it? They would be cutting off their own supply of money. Maybe we SHOULD just elect the special interests directly. We could cut on the middle men -- the lobbyists -- and probably get the same result for less money overall!
