There was an old commercial for Barney's Boys Town, that said, "money talks, nobody walks". That is true with our government. Our representatives, in the "house" spend most of their time trying to raise money to get elected. I am for the British system; they campaign for just a few weeks and then they must, as they so elequently quote, "carry on" with their duties. It is sad that our elected officials put "their needs in bickering with opposite party" instead of the need of the american people.
