The US citizen is feeling disenfranchised and misrepresented by their elected officials. Numerous groups are speaking out and organizing against obvious inequities in legislation. Hundreds of millions of dollars have been spent on lobbying and campaign contributions by industry, corporations and other special interests to purchase favorable legislation ranging from tax breaks, government contracts, favorable regulation or deregulation and a litany of other benefits. US citizens and tax payers are beginning to realize that the hundreds of millions of dollars spent in lobbying is providing tens of billions of dollars in benefits of which tax payers are ultimately paying for while not receiving any of the benefits. All the while, Congress continues to spend out of control, running up the deficit to over $13 trillion (of what was actually reported) and appears to have no regard for fiscal responsibility whatsoever. This cozy relationship between special interests, which really means corporations and our legislators, needs to be reigned in and spending brought under control. Failure to do so will result in a debt crisis we may not be able to recover from. The call is going out to get rid of incumbents. It is past time to vote them all out now.
