We are not meant to know the puppet master(s.) The government will tell us when we should know.

Excellent squawk, good humor! Unfortunately politics in Washington is cutthroat and devoid of humor.

I do believe with a litle research, we would know who they have sold their vote to. Problem is many of them survive and are re-elected due to their gifts to the masses. Courtesy of us Taxpayers. I believe we all know this is a bought and paid for Government, don't we?

I believe Mark Twain said of the government, "We have the best government money can buy." We can not even say that, the way things are.

It seems we have a small effect on Republicans ,Saxby Chambliss, but Democrats don't seem to care. Their representative can be accused or even convicted of the most heinous crimes and they still get voted back in. It has been said many times, liberals have a mental problem.

I guess we may have finally had some effect on Saxby who decided to bow out rather than be defeated. Johnny will coast a few more years doing wonderful things for the country--not--and Sanford has been set up for as long as his constituency gets its monthly EBTs et al. If we pasted logos on these guys to indicate sponsors they would have to be so small a magnifying glass would be needed--a lurge one at that!

Democrats and Republicans alike are bought and sold by sponsors. A PBS story said half of the work day is spent raising money. They work 3 days a week. It's not lost on state legislators either. I go with the squawk.
