The voters don't have any influence
That is what a friend of mine said last summer and I have been trying ever since to come up with a reason what she is wrong and coming up short.
It is simply incredible to me that with a Dem president and Dem Senate we are going to spend the next several months defending social security.
And how is it possible that Obama is considering hiring someone from JP morgan Chase as his Chief of Staff???? If the voters had any influence at all no one would even mention such a thing.
