Status Quo Politicians
This week, the Democratic Convention began. So what are they doing to change the lobbyists, the free-spending and splurging? According to ABC News, nothing. Gobs of money are being spent on luxury, high-end food and specialty goods. The party of change isn’t doesn’t seem to be changing much of the status quo that has taken over politics in America. Though he has vowed to fight the lobbyists, Obama apparently has said that it’s too late to change what’s already plan. Maybe so. Read the whole article here to see why I’ve awarded this week’s shame award to Status Quo Politicians. McCain doesn’t seem to be any better. He looks like he has catered plenty enough to lobbyists himself as discussed here. Both parties talk about how they’re the party of change, they’re the ones to cut the pork, blah, blah, blah. But does anything ever change?
