I just read this
article from the National Journal
(yes, it used to be a 'dreaded' left leaning paper, but now basically covers Washington with a jaundiced and mostly non-partisan eye - as you'll note when you go to their site
) which simply states the obvious truth: Neither side can budge in any direction that will truly help the middle class. You can read more about this over at my blog
By the way, have you called your representative yet? The President? Waived your right to vote under their noses? We do have the power and they often forget it (even though several states are now making it more difficult for the elderly, the minorities, the disabled and students to vote).
