Re: “U.S. Rep. Womack goes ballistic on constituent

The Politicians as well as the Wealthy and Mega Corporations don't like it when their word or decisions are questioned. hence Mr. Womacks answers to his constituent. The very people who elect them but ah there is the ERROR, Big Money fills their campaign funds, Gets them elected so in a sense they bought the very politician we thought we were electing to represent us. The Obscene amount of money it takes to run for office, do you think those wealthy people and Corporations that donate all that money do so for the fun of it, Hell no, they do it exactly for the reason I stated before, to purchase that politician so they insure when legislation comes up they get the vote they need to advance their cause or in many cases to prevent laws and regulations from impacting them or their profits all the while they continue to throw people out of their homes and raid people pension plans all in the name of GREED

Re: “U.S. Rep. Womack goes ballistic on constituent

The Problem with Politicians is they spend so much time raising huge sums of cash most of which have to come from corporations and the wealthy in exchange those big money donors pull the strings of the politicians to do their bidding and if not, that's the lobbyists job. Why on earth does it take millions of dollars to run for office. They start off saying or meaning to represent the people until they get elected than all the special interests that donated to their campaign start wielding their demands and the end result is the American people no matter what state they come from get ignored in the form of lax regulation that benefits the bottom lines of corporations and the wealthy while pilfering working Americans Retirement accounts, Sitting idle as corporations send jobs off shore while continuing to allow those same jobless American corporations to have the tax breaks and benefits they have always gotten. So Many people are focused on the D and The R when if u go beyond that and look at all the legislation and laws that come out of Congress both state and federal, The single common theme is the wealthy and corporations get all the breaks and the rest of us better tow the line and give our offerings in terms of taxes and in the words of Mr. Womack Shut up and listen..... Until the day arrives that people who run for public office can do so at a working mans wage, We the People will continue to get Screwed while the Corporations get their huge breaks and the wealthy continue to roll around in their piles of money. If ever there was an unfair taxation it's NOW.....You can vote people out of office and vote others in but the fact remains, Campaign Finance requires BIG MONEY hence in come the wealthy and corporations who buy the votes of politicians on the very legislation that would A) Regulation them and B) Legislation that benefits the less fortunate. "In God we Trust, All Others Pay Cash" " Money Talks and Bullshit walks" Follow the money and you follow the politicians vote.
