Regardless of party, these senators and congressmen are never going to have your best interests at heart. When they get elected to that position, they
no longer listen to the people that elected them. They listen to the lobbyists that bribe them.
A great example is Orrin Hatch. A Republican. He has been a senator since 1977. And in all that time, he has received a substantial amount of money
from dietary supplement companies every year in the form of campaign contributions. In exchange, he has pushed hard to keep the FDA away from these
And the other thing about parties is that once you fly the Republican or Democrat banner, you are expected to share all of the same views that the
party does. Your stance on gay rights, abortion, religious freedom, corporate bailouts, or whatever are expected to be predetermined. Hey, you are a
democrat. This is how you are supposed to feel about this topic.
It is safe to assume that every last congressman and senator out there is just playing a role and being paid by corporations to have certain opinions
and to block or try to pass certain bills which would be favorable to these companies.
Just look at the Affordable Care Act. A bill that started out as an attempt to provide free health care to everyone in the US. As soon as congress got
their hands on it, they drastically changed the bill, forcing all citizens to have to pay for insurance instead of having health care provided from
the tax dollars that we already pay.
Why would they do that? Because several of these people were being bribed by health care lobbyists. And once the bill was passed, the cost of health
insurance increased, leading to tons of profit. And since you are required to have it, we the citizens were put over a barrel so that some congressmen
could make a buck.
