45. It's Not Just That Congress IGNORES

 

the "will of the people".

it's wayyy worse than that. the austerity crowd (same ol' clownservatives, plus the teabagger mob) constantly whine and moan about the fed government "spends too much" and "this can't go on"... except when it comes to the obvious bloated sacred cow-- defense spending. they want this spending to INCREASE.

the "democrats" in congress go along with this massive hypocrisy, because they, too, have defense industries in their districts, and are getting bribes, errrrr, I mean campaign contributions from these companies-- to keep our tax money flowing to them.

Weak, very weak. There's NO difference between the "democrats" and the reppugs on this issue.
