We need a way to cull the influence of ... corporate money in American politics
That happens went politicians stop listening to and taking bribes from their lobbyists. Only they can change that, which is why is doesn't change.
Corrupt people want the 175k job because they all leave rich or on the way there.
I agree with you in general, though I take umbrage with the idea that "most people still live fairly well". That simply is not so. America is not the world. Most people get the sharp end of the stick. And then, some more stick. We never get the carrot.

Yeah, it'll never be fixed.
About the best any of us can do is play the game. There is no Superman, no one will ever save us.
Sometimes. . . . sometimes the bad guys win.
I wish it was only "sometimes". But it sure doesn't seem that way.
