As we have seen in the past., the second term is when most things get done right for the left party since they spend most of their time in the first term fighting the right wing bibots and defending what they have accomplished, the second term is when they can do their fighting best since they have no fear of not being able to have enough time to complete their duties. and do not have to worry about running again but , it is also when the right gets dirty or filthy with their tricks . as seen with Carter, Kennedy and all of the other crucified dems. that try to do right for ALL OF US.! .( to all of you who actually know what i mean.)

If President Obama gets a Congress which will work WITH him, he can make great strides. Whether the Congress is a Democratic or a Republican Congress (after 4 years of their chronic vacations while still being paid, and the U.S. falling victim to their vigilante obstructionism), I would like to believe that the last four years must have taught our elected Officials something... but maybe not. Time will tell.

The Middle Class Needs More Than Talking Points

Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have been talking a lot about the middle class. But, that talk is cheap as long as their in bed with Wall Street.

From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
