Who would need lobbyists any more ?

Views from Indiana

I am a public school teacher in Indiana, not a good place to be right now. Thom talked about the Republican destruction of the Hoosier middle class and I am sad to report that Mitch Daniels has just about finished what he set out to do on the day he was sworn in to office in 2005. First executive order from Mitch was to eliminate collective bargaining for state employees. Union membership for state employees has dropped to an all time low of less than 10%. Throughout his tenure as governor of Indiana, Mitch has made it difficult for the teachers' union, the Indiana S

i think the Washington\Oil and Gas Nexus needs a new buzz phrase

Its time for Salazar, Inouye, Baucus, Kerry, Schumer, Durbin, Pelosi, etc. to follow Hillary’s lead in getting out of politics.

And yes, you can add to that list: Geithner, Bernanke, Immelt and the rest of the Banksters.

It's our Country too.

We Are All Pharma-Bro Suckers

"Pharma Bro" Martin Shkreli became one of the most notorious people in America for hiking the price of a rarely used life-saving drug by 4,000 percent in September of 2015.
