One recurring voter lament is....what happened to the person I helped elect? When he/she got into office, the votes cast did not resemble the campaign rhetoric.
Part of the difference is due to the normal compromise and horse trading that is part of the political process. But, more and more, the difference is due to "Doing Business" in Congress.
Our fragmented tax and spend policy empowers special interests. Those special interests have gained control of our government through massive campaign contributions and the resultant flow of political favoritism. This corrupt process has clearly shifted into overdrive. No one can get elected or re-elected without serving those interests.
As the government role increases and tax and spend is unfettered, the politician that tries to serve the general interest and general welfare is swept from office. Those that remain are those that are best at "doing business."
