Like many of us, I voted for Obama expecting CHANGE in government. What has changed? Pork barrel bills? Nope, still have plenty of those. I expected him to show some level of courage and actually VETO bills that were full of favors and special interest. Why is it so difficult to get accountability in government? They work for US and should be accountable to US. It enrages me to have massive layoffs, homes being lost and a banking sytem in a collapsed state and all our representatives in DC can do is MORE PORK BARREL SPENDING. They are so insulated, so elitist and so removed from reality and having to earn a living that I am very, very worried for our future.
