Thom Hartmann: If at first you don't succeed...bribe, bribe again



Sheldon Adelson - the casino tycoon who helped bankroll the Romney campaign - is coming to Washington - even though his man isn't in the White House. Why is Adelson meeting with Republican lawmakers - and does he have alternative motives in mind?

1. The American people need to take control with some new Amendments to the Constitution.

Republican Lawmakers support the likes of Shelly A, not the common good, not the true business of America, but the wealthy private sector.

A change from 6 year terms for Senators to one or two years, needs to come first. If they face a primary more often, their voting record and its results can be looked at by the constituents. And this could reign in spending by outside influences. For instance, did Cantor vote to remove or change Medicare? Social security? Right to get organized in a labor union? Stop women' contraception? And the results, higher birthrate of the poor causing an increase in Medicaid and State Foster Care cost for the state's taxpayers.

A two year term would allow for immediate inspection of a lawmaker's voting record.

I think that the Founding Fathers needed 6 year terms in 1786. That was over 200 years ago.

2. Ted Cruz of Texas could be up for reelection with John Corny in two years if we had a new Amendment.
