50. More like one side more than the other
You are right in that Reps want to destroy any good the dems attempted the second they won the house. Cutting spending is their way of undoing any gains the economy made from the stimulus. Attacking entitlements is their way to make sure dems get the blame for that after they saw how much crap they were getting from the Ryan plan.
Ratigan leans too right for me but he is correct that both parties are bought. Look at Baucus. Look at who donates to all the members of congress. That no one in congress has moved aggressively to counter Citizen's United suggests they are all looking forward to the corporate gravy train and we will not have anyone truly representing the people until that is stopped.
Extraction is a great word for it, too. That is what is happening. How anyone can defend that and still be elected is beyond me.
