The Game is Rigged

Our Congress today is a forum for legalized bribery.

Why are there 61 members on the House Committee on Financial Services? So many congressmen want to be in a position to sell votes to Wall Street.

-- Tom Friedman, New York Times

Looks like that is the realization which is slowly sipping through America. Occupy Wall Street may fold soon, but American Public is going in that direction. Not for nothing, a new rock start gets minted on Left.

I believe Republicans sense this risk, but do not consider it important enough to alter their game plan of continuing to shelter 1% of this country. Kind of how Obama Administration did not alter the game plan when Tea Party was nascent. But I doubt how long Republicans would be able to sustain a tone deaf approach to American reality of inequality. Sense is time is running out for this policy of protecting rich under a squarely challenged premise of rich creates jobs in this country.  No, rich are not the reason for new jobs, it is Demand; and it will not come unless policies are ready to address the stark income imbalance.
