'We, the people' used to mean something

We are under a false illusion that our elected officials are after our best interests. We are entering an era of extensive austerity: hospitals closing, social services ending, massive foreclosures, food banks, tent cities, extended unemployment, schools overcrowded, colleges tuition rising, and the list goes on.

At the same time the states are going into austerity, the banks that got our bailout money are thriving and handing out bonuses. Trillions of dollars to the banks and NOTHING to Main Street.

The Federal Reserve (remember they are not a government entity, but run by the bankers) that keeps printing money that isn’t coming to the States—where are the jobs? Better yet, where is the leadership? We voted our elected officials into office thinking they were after we, the people’s best interest.
