4. You are so right ...one day, every two or four years
They day after we vote for the most Progressive (appearing) of the lot, our power ends. Once in power, they do what their special interests or party elders have strategized. How many House Progs signed any number of resolutions NOT to fund wars, NOT to vote for a health plan without a public option...etc. Then, they do it. Often under pressure from WH or Dem Party.

As for accountability, THEY are the ones that decide who gets censured, impeached, investigated and/or stripped of chairmanships. They don't think about us until fundraising time. I love Thom and listen daily, but on this he is too much the boy scout.
