How Congress Occupied Wall Street: “Politicians who arrive in Washington as men and women of modest means leave as millionaires. Why?… I've learned from local, state and national political experience that the only solution to entrenched corruption is sudden and relentless reform.

But heads never roll. The Obama administration has raised this accountability charade to an art form”.
The GOP Leadership is once again caving in and moving the compromise line further left as they state more willingness to accept tax increases. Even more incredible is that they show their hand so willingly during negotiations. I wish they were at my poker table – if I had one!
