Basically we have a bunch of wealthy people in a bubble...
...that are playing games with the lives of everyone else.
That is our US Congress and Senate, of whom more than 50% are millionaires or better. They have no idea what the average person is doing in our lives. They are not representatives of the people.
And the worst part is, they don't give a shit. They just want to remain in power and continue to fatten their bank accounts. If they decide to leave, it is because they got a cush job as a lobbyist for the defense industry, the drug industry, or for the insurance companies.
I am slowly coming to the conclusion that we need to change them all. It will be unfortunate that a few of the good ones will have to go also.
This is where my thoughts are today.

They really don't give a shit, as long as they got theirs. Government by the people, for the people. Well, these out of touch uber-wealthy do not represent the people.
