Two Political Parties For The Prices Of $1,188,644,055

That is nearly $1.2 Billion split between the two parties. And look who the top two were - Obama and Bush.
Is it any wonder we can't get a decent financial reform bill passed - one that would actually deal with the root causes of the previous crisis, not the joke of the one we got? Is it any wonder none of the big issues are being solved?

Keep it coming GX. Great stuff. People have to at least start talking about this before anything can happen to fix it.

Not good, but compared to the bigger picture, even if this money were paid directly to the federal govt to pay down the debt, its impact would be not much more than a rounding error. How do you propose we change this paradigm?

Steve - I agree that our Federal fiscal situation is a much bigger issue. But I believe it is important that we start to disect the reasons for all the dysfunction coming out of Washington and the fact that we can't craft credible solutions for obvious problems. Problems that will continue to erode this once-great country.
It is long past time to hold our leaders accountable. And this Republican/Democrat barb fest is not helping anyone. Both political parties as they are structured today are failing the American people.
