They Feel Your Pain?

The Contra Costa Times reports today that California lawmakers are among Congress' wealthiest members, with Dianne Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi leading the pack.

I found some of the info on Barbara Boxer interesting. I'd never heard she wrote and published a book. She didn't seem to make much on it. Not much effort must have been made in advertising, I guess. Either that or maybe because it was fiction. I would think people would be more interested in non- fiction from a senator.

Interesting stuff. I wish they'd included details on more congresscritters.

Don't you know? Finestine and Pelousy are wealthy beyond the dreams of most of us, yet they serve in the Senate and Congress to help us lower persons out! They look out for our needs! NOT. They make money for their spouses, friends, family, and in turn by their power. Exhanging Favors. And they aren't the only ones.

Barbara Boxer's book was non-fiction, I believe a mystery novel. I haven't read it, but did see her on either John Stewart or Stephen Colbert when she was out selling it.

Hmmm... the news article gave me the impression it was fiction when they wrote, "The novel, released in paperback last year, is set largely on Capitol Hill and features a feisty, diminutive, liberal senator much like Boxer herself.

Its amusing to me how the right wingers are feigning to be shocked, shocked that 21st century America someone has to be rich as Croesus in order to run for President or Congress. Or at least they have to suck up to Croesus.

How far would a poor or working class person represting thier interesr=ts get in such a campaign enviroment?

Nowhere is my guess.

Perhaps that's why our social policies all seemed to be skewed to benefit the already wealthy

One does not have to be poor or working class in order to advocate policies that might benefit the poor.
Just like one does not need to have to have served in the military in order to advocate policies that might benefit the Military.

I remember a bunch of right wingers came unglued at me about that very point last year when I called out one particularly bellicose Republican chicken-boy by the name of Anthony Mantova on why he wasn't enlisting, in a Eureka Reporterr op-ed

However they are willing to apply the exact opposite reasoning when attacking Barbara Boxer or Ted Kennedy .

Isn't what they what they doing to Edwards is accusing them of being class traitors against the rich

Maybe that makes sense to you, but it's a load of shit to my ears.

If Fred really was a Libertarian he would conclude that Feinstein's and Boxer's wealth are political assets and they might well deserve positions of responsibility because they are financially successful. Thats a Libertarian value.

But Fred is actually a very reactionary and partisan Republican and he's indigent and on welfare to boot. So, appealing to envy and jealousy, Fred's line implies being wealthy is a political negative. That plays well with the folks at the rescue mission, where Fred will someday be, but not among real Libertarians.

It ridiculous at this point in American History to say that ots of money is not a political advantage.

Just one look at Congress will tell you that .

Its almost gotten to the point where only super-rich people can get elected to high office.

Small wonder the special interests of the super rich are so over-represented
