That the ELECTED might never form to themselves an interest
    separate from the ELECTORS, prudence will point out the
    propriety of having elections often.

Republicans Sabotage Buffet Rule
Republicans once again demonstrated that they do not represent you last night, when they filibustered and blocked the Buffett rule, as I predicted (no rocket science required).  Even though 72% of Americans favor it’s passage, 72% does not matter to them.  The only number that does matter is 1%… (videos)


The flat blue line = YOU and the rest of the 99%.The steeply sloping red line = Romney and the 1%.This is the intended outcome of Republican Trickle-Down economics:
"It will never trickle down and the rich will get richer. Ha Ha Suckers!"
