Tuesday, Oct 10th, this very evening Obama is being coddled by a number of the 1% ers. John Morgan of Orlando FL is putting on a fund raiser at HIS HOME, with plates going for up to $33,000. Many other 1% ers are present. I voted for Obama for change, and what change did I get, more of the same. Those with the bucks get the ears of politicians.
I one thing that could come out of OWS, is a constitutional amendment that strickens corporations from 1) providing any money to an elected office, 2) providing any money to a PAC, 3) Industry associations can have lobbyist, but no lobbyist can provide money to any elected official, it would be just a meet and persuade conversation only.
Don't down the role of the Lobbyist, they represent the peoples voice too. Sierra Club, AARP, Mental Health Orgs, Rails to Trails, Natrual Resources Defense Council. Keep in mind, the ADA law pass in the late 80's did not originate in Congress, it was a group of Lobbyist that over the years made that happen. Join an association and have your voice heard. I can't go to Washington to rally on every topic.
