112. It all boils down to

how elections are financed. Until that changes the corporations and their wealthy individual partners will continue to write laws that dictate the national direction, and makes them even more money and power. Take a look at the amount of millionaires and billionaires in Congress!. They operate in a very different world and have little or no concept of the one inhabited by the average working person. And still we keep electing them, wondering why our interests are not represented. That old saying about the definition of insanity ....Corruption has been sanitized to make it palatable by calling it lobbying.
