If Washington is going to survive the recent wave of political change in America it is going to have to get on the side of the average American . The Working Class is the backbone of America, not the rich. The rich may control corporate America but the working man built it and sustains it financially. Those people who makes around minimum wage is greater in numbers than the politician,Doctor and C.E.O. Executive who make more in a year than some do in a lifetime. But who has the greater voice in out capital in the end? The big businesses and the politician who are backed by them. I can not say every politician puts wealth and power above his duties to the citizens he represents but if you examine the bills passed in congress it seems most of them are written to benefit corporate America more than Americans in general.
The president won his office thanks to the average Joe and his/her votes and so did all of the congress. You would think they would care more about the voters who got them in office than the lobbyists and the corporations behind them. I do believe there are some in congress and Washington that do care and listen, just not enough to make a difference. I also believe if enough people got together and voiced their concerns to our capitol then congress would have to listen. We the people of The united states is what the constitution says and not we the wealthy or we the corporations. Maybe I am just believing in the fairy tale that the USA is a free nation and has a government of the people, by the people and for the people. Well who knows only time will only tell.
