The GOP has NOT held this country hostage for "their corporate buddies". If that were so then those 'corporate buddies' would go away or vanish when the Dems had all 3 houses (senate, congress & white ) & that didn't happen because the basic picture doesn't change. One thing that does change is when politicians raise taxes the jobs & money will go elseware.<quoted text>Everything, any person with half a brain knows that the House GOP has held this country hostage for their ALEC and huge corporate buddies who have them bought and paid for. You keep blaming one person who has no control over what those idiots are doing. Go back to school and learn how Government works.
Obama has a Senate paralyzed by filibusters, and a House controlled by tea party wingnuts. Believing that the president can fix this dysfunction with some magical feat of "leadership" is naive.
The economy is slowly, slowly returning to health. We need to demand that Congress do something other than obstruct.
There are different pervasive phylosophies between Dems & Rep, & Tea Party & progressives etc but the primary problem is the career politician protecting their cushy cushy jobs that the LIV & teat sucking voters keep voting for.
Yes there are some good ones but overall Politicians are the best reason for term limits.
