    Many of the politically left of center see the 'protests' as between the left and the right, when what may be happening is that there is a growing sense that what we need is a total overhaul of those 'benefitting, not serving' in Congress. This includes a Christopher Dodd and a John Boehner.

    Whether it's sweetheart deals or taxpayer paid vacations, cloaked in national security disclaimers, we shouldn't be paying for it.

    They all need to go.

    Nope, it's both Democrats and Republicans. They are all wanting to be our daddy, then leave us at home while they party it up. They are not a good daddy. We are all Cinderella's and Cinderfella's, but there isn't a prince or princesses coming to save us!

    WASHINGTON -- When 10 members of Congress wanted to study climate change, they did more than just dip their toes into the subject: They went diving and snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef. They also rode a cable car through the Australian rain forest, visited a penguin rookery and flew to the South Pole.

    and, yes, it's both parties.

    it is both parties...because powerful people like the perks of their power.

    but i think this actually bugs me more because they're paying for their members to essentially run a separate foreign policy:

    Power corrupts. Money corrupts. The entrenched 2-party system corrupts. Throw the bums out.

    On the other hand, we generally have a tendency to whine about career politicians on one hand then blast pols for being "inexperienced" on the other. Can't have it both ways, you know.
