When you have time this is worth a look. It's Dylan Ratigan of MSNBC talking about why Washington, D.C. is getting us mired in a morrass of partisanship and impotence. After the expected snowstorm today and tomorrow, I'm going to watch it again.
He says we have a "bought" Congress. It all revolves around money in politics. It's hard to rebut.
But could the over-arching problem be character, that of the members of Congress and the people who elected them?
