Yet another reason why our government seems to be totally out of step with the realities of the 99% living across America today:
If it seems like our Congress is catering to the whims of the 1%, it’s because they have more in common with them than they do with us. Take a quick read at The Daily What – the collective net worth of our federal lawmakers jumped 25% in TWO YEARS. What recession?
It’s yet another example of how broken and corrupted our system of government is, that you need to be in the wealthiest income percentiles to get elected to office.
And it makes an even stronger case for reforms such as the Saving American Democracy constitutional amendment.
