Thats why America is getting nowhere. The wealthy are using money to bribe congress into passing THEIR laws and achieving their political goals. Look at SOPA and related laws for example. SOPA was extremely opposed and despite that, millions of dollars was given to Congress as a bribe to get it passed. That failed because of such widespread outrage, so a few more million dollars was given to Harry Reid to keep pushing for similar laws to be pushed, until he gave up on it and indefinitely shelved the bill, pocketing the money. So until laws that will punish congress are passed, expect corrupt politicians to run for office, expect loony candidates such as Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum to run for President, claiming to fix the whole problem when in reality shit wont get done and everything gets worse, expect our national budget to never be solved, expect foreign issues to never be solved, etc. The choice is yours. Either continue to let this happen or let it fly and let us all suffer.
