We have come full circle. The Nation is once again governed by those in the pockets of Corporate America. And, if you haven't noticed, the brunt of the tax burden is on the backs of working Americans whether they be self employed or otherwise. Many of the giant corps pay little to no taxes but are getting the lion's share of representation in D.C. Think GE, Exxon Mobil, the Banking Industry, the Insurance Industry, Media giants like Newscorp. the list is endless. Don't forget Citizen's United!! Yet, when the people demand, overwhelmingly, the fix the debt crisis, create jobs, work together to move the Country forward all they hear in D.C. are crickets chirping. There used to be a saying: "when the people lead, the leaders will follow". That's how America is supposed to work but it's no longer true. The leaders are following the money. So we, once again, are carrying the tax burden while the gov't is dictated to by the huge corps who pay little to no taxes but get the lion's share of representation. There used to be another saying which still is true; "taxation without representation is tyranny"!! Are you listening, Tea Party?
