    Getting a lot of SPIN from the Reps today. On the one hand, money is speech. On the other hand the 7-1 advantage held by the Reps in WI did not effect the voters' reasons for their choice. Then why all the flack over limiting money?

    As long as our current system is allowed to existg nothing will change. Congressmen and women make a lot of money at their job. Their families are employed by the gov't, contractors and lobbist. Trips are paid for, laws are passed that they don't have to obey and the beat goes on. My biggest gripe is that my SS money that was suppossed to be in a trust fund was stolen by congress for their on end and I am left with the dregs.

    They don't care about you, because you're not the one paying the bills.
