The Great American Stickup: How Reagan Republicans and Clinton Democrats Enriched Wall Street While Mugging Main Street by Robert Scheer
The Great American Stickup: How Reagan Republicans and Clinton Democrats Enriched Wall Street While Mugging Main Street

bselig1, August 6, 2010

Great title. How true it is. Sadly, it's destroying our country. Until there are term-limits for Congress it will continue this way. They have to spend too much time obtaining money to run for office there is little time for work and caring about anything else but their "ego-centric" self. It is not their fault entirely- it's our system that creates it by our Representatives having to be campaigning all the time. This includes the President, who is constantly having to be on the road for other candidates in his/her party . "Show me the Money" is the name of the game and the players are the Bankers and Large Corporations who supply what they need quickly, which also leads to unholy self-serving friendships ie: "It's just business". Who you know is what counts. Not a shocker for me.
I look forward to reading Mr. Sheer's book.
