He's a politician looking for his re-election dollars and the only big donators, those that can afford to bribe politicians, are the health insurance companies, Oil companies, Bankers and Hedge fund managers. They can donate, bribe him, with millions and we as his constituents can only donate $2000. Who are the politician's beholding to? Not us the citizen, that's for sure or else we wouldn't be in this shape. The banks got hundreds of BILLIONS last fall and what did we get? Foreclosure and 40% loss in our 401Ks. Banks get 0% interest rates and they charge us up to 30%. And politicians, especially the republicans, make sure the Citigroups, Exxon-Mobils, Sears, Bernie Madoffs and their kind RAPE us continually. Why do you think they helped get rid of employer based retirement and made us pay 401K and IRAs? We lose and the corporations always win.
Health insurance? 20% of a big number is a BIG number! Get cancer or a by-pass and see if you can keep your home. That is if your insurance company allows you to get treatment to stay alive.
Professional Politicians... YUK!

I hope Senator Webb has the " Constitution " to stand up for the people who voted for him.
