Actually at least half of them list themselves as 'businessmen'. They come from the executive offices of the largest corporations. Government to them is just another revenue stream to subsidize their corporations...while its 'free markets' for everyone else.Let me inform you folks of something. Republicans or Democrat, makes no difference. They are CAREER POLITICIANS. It's ALL About the Money. That's why Obama just set a new record for most money raised for re-election campaign. Yeah I see him sharing the wealth..... Bet you no one gets a dime. Keep dreaming your socialist dreams, Or your hard core conservative dreams. They are milking you dry. Term limits are not good enough. Even if they serve only a single term, they get a nice pension and plenty of perks. THEY are the Welfare you complain about.
