I don't see people who will do anything to keep these jobs voting to kick themselves out. Still I can't imagine them voting for public funded elections either. I think a serious grass roots movement is the only way. Nice reason to have facebook

spending bill too, passing a 2 year plan instead of a 6 year one 2
years after the last one expired.
No it is not all Obama's fault, he is not adept enough to make such a
mess without help from Pelosi and Reid among others.
I typed out two paragraphs in response to your drivel above, then
deleted them when I realized that your response was too absurd to take
seriously.
You refused to respond to what I actually said, so why should I extend
you a courtesy you refuse to show for me?

And worse, for you, there are a lot of other people out there
who realize how absurd this anti-Obama myopia is…

Obama – Overall Approval rating: *46% approve / 47% disapprove.

However, when people look at Congress as a whole, they could only
DREAM of having an approval rating that high at this point…

Congress – Overall approval rating: 16% approve / 78% disapprove.
Congress – Democrat approval rating: *18%
Congress – Republican approval rating: *14%
Presidential Approval Ratings -- Barack Obama
Congress Approval Remains Historically Low, Now 16%

So, despite the fact that you refuse to recognize that both sides are
to blame (and I can come to terms with the fact that for a small
segment of society like yourself, you can’t acknowledge that), there
are a lot of other people out there who recognize that… *
And as slim as it is with Democrats having a 4% gap, it’s fairly
consistent over time that the Democrats in Congress have had the same
approval rating or better than the approval rating of the Republicans
in Congress.

But you keep on trying to fixate on blaming only Obama if you like…
It’s that one-sided myopia that PROVES what I am talking about, as you
naively think you’re trying to rebut it… *

Well for starters the special interest would have to find new people to bribe constantly. They couldn't use campaign donations for leverage and these politicians wouldn't think their career depended on them because there is no career in politics.
