The President's Weekly Address: Giving Government Back to the American People

From the White House blog:

As the President beats back lobbyists seeking to weaken Wall Street Reform, he talks about an even broader threat that would vastly expand the influence of massive industries and their lobbyists in Washington. A recent Supreme Court decision opened the floodgates for corporations, including foreign corporations, to spend endless money on political ads that would give them even more power at the expense of American families – the President pledges to fight for reforms to stem that influence.




I just hope the President can get this done. With the Rethugs blocking everything and being so favorable to big business, it is going to be a struggle.

We have to keep the government and the process in the hands of the people as much as we can. The Citizen's United case was a disaster for this country as we all know and it must be stopped.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and let me hear your opinions on this.
