    Hmmm, you’re probably thinking of the latest Congressional pay raise.


    Or the law(s) allowing them and their staff to do insider trading.


    Or their exhausting work schedule.

    This is a good cartoon and it sure strikes home here in the mid west where many of us LOVE gridlock. Congress rarely passes a bill that benefits hard working tax paying Americans. If they get something done it usually involves taking something away from us.

    Vote third party. Start local and work our way up.

    Corporatists, both of them.
    When I think of how many people on this list actually believed Obama was a “Marxist” or “socialist,” I just laugh…

    Free trade creates net jobs. The bill passed only gives Obama an up or down vote on whatever the free trade bill eventually becomes. If it’s a bad bill, it will be voted down. If it’s a good bill, it will be passed. Do I sound naive?

    @John Locke

    Both naïve and really unaware of recent history. One could make EXACTLY the same statements about the H1-B laws. Do you REALLY think it’s good to allow foreign workers with poor qualifications to compete directly with Americans for jobs, given their average pay is about half the US workers pay? MILLIONS of people have filed petitions, gotten out votes and even run for office – but the money talks and the H1-B’s keep rolling right along.
    The situation is very very similar.
    So yeah, you don’t just sound naïve, you are naïve. TERRIBLY naïve.

    @OldCoal

    What does your reference to the H1-B law on high-tech workers have to do with a free trade bill? H1-B is part of the immigration mess. Is immigration to be a part of free trade?

    The two parties are NOT the same, as you saw last week — who gets nominated to the supreme court makes a huge difference in the lives of millions of Americans. Another thing that will make a huge difference is whether Paul Ryan’s budget, with it’s 4 trillion dollar deficit, elimination of taxes on the rich, increase of taxes on the middle class, and elimination of environmental regulation gets signed or vetoed. Don’t get cynical. It makes a huge difference. Vote.

    @ARodney

    I totally agree with you, ARodney. Don’t get cynical. Conservatives VOTE!

    Naïve? No, you sound like a bad echo of the hypocritical liars who spout that BS. “Free trade creates net jobs”? Sure it does; the ones we lose in this country open up in other countries. And that doesn’t even mention the absolutely outrageous ISDS chapter, regfarding a world corporate court, which chapter is to be kept SECRET for FOUR YEARS after the bill gets passed.
    .
    If you think that’s OK, then you clearly have no respect for the basics of democracy. A SECRET law which overrides national laws? That is obscene.

    They had to get it in now, so they can distract us with electioneering for a year & a half. Don’t let them. Vote them out.

    @mattro53

    Third parties are a dead end until you end the duopoly that keeps them out.Why don’t more people understand that, like you?

    Yes, we now have low paying service jobs as the number one means of working and getting little in return. Sold off our moved off manufacturing crippling our economy.
