65. Why is expecting excellence going "bat shit crazy"?
All we want is an good bill.... an excellent bill... not a crappy bill that doesn't do what we set out to do in the 1st place.

This "we'll fix it later" mantra didn't work in the '80's, the 90's or during the Bush years. Why keep doing that?

If we went bat shit crazy on campaign finance reform... all candidates get the same amount and the same air time.... we might get something other than bought and paid for reps who spend more time campaigning than doing their job. Term limits are good too.
