In my opinion, if a senator or congressman are linked to a company they should be ineligable to run.

The Democrats are wealthy as well. Forget left and right, we need to vote for the middle, 3rd party?

Mine left the State Senate ($42,000/yr) to run last year. Proud of Congressman Derek Kilmer (D-WA)!

In order for a lot of this to change the republicans and teaparty followers have to stop voting those into office that has no meaning to help the american people but to become rich in the process. The left has to start voting in each and every election and not just for president but for all the election. We have seen what could happen if all the democrats actually vote, we just need to keep it up. The only thing that is going to help us is when there are a lot of strong protests that each party can see, especially the republicans and teaparties.

Well we the american people are to blame for this big mess in the congress. Those who keep elected the republicans and teaparty into office knowning they only care about themself. Then there is the democrats who don't vote given the republicans the majority of votes.
