Good article. If the recession affected all people proportionatly, it would be an equitable shared sacrifice.

John,Thank you for your insightful article of another version of big business running big government - to the detriment of the little guy. It is the same with the oil industry corrupting the development of alternative energy and of supporting the invasion of other countries to secure dwindling global oil supplies. It is the same with the financing industry devastating our economy and creating legislation that isolates them from responsibility. It is the same with the health insurance industry being at the bargaining table to bolster their obscene profits. This capitalism-run-amuck is all authorized by the body of congress that you wish to join. As a candidate for congress, what are you going to do that is any different?
