One keeps hearing of the failures of our elected representatives in Congress. I contend that they have accomplished exactly what they were elected for. The massive contributions by very large corporations and persons of extreme wealth have led to the election of many far-right individuals who have made all but a few public service unions a shadow of the past; real wages have declined since the 1980s and the middle class of America is at its lowest percentage since the end of World War II and on the decline.

The goal of these folks was the return of a feudalistic state where a very few control nearly all of the wealth of a nation. Mission accomplished.
