The Real Problem in Washington

Why can't Congress get together and pass legitimate health care reform? Why can't Congress pass a energy policy that makes sense for the 21st century? Why can't Congress enact the necessary regulatory reforms to prevent another Wall Street meltdown? Pick any number of similar questions related to needed solutions for the common good - the answer's always the same. It's the money! Until we get the corrupting money out of campaign finance - so our representatives speak for us and not the interests that bought and paid for them, the answer's always going to be the same - it's the money!
