    I agree that special interests are a problem. What's "best for the country" requires each politician to do a straw poll with lobbyists rather than their constituents. Perhaps we should stop voting against our own interests by re-electing them?

    Who treats capital best? Is it individuals spending it to help get the economy rolling or is it banks and businesses keeping capital in their pockets after getting tax cuts? Tax incentives work for all of us if they are put back into the economy.

    Lobbyists and earmarks can definitely take a hike. I would like to see us build that bridge by cutting military spending, create jobs and hire some workers to build the bridge, and by the wealthiest paying more taxes to help pay for the bridge.

    "We" is meant to refer to the citizens of any country, although I am in the United States and worded the question to apply to the U.S. I would appreciate responses from the viewpoint of residents of any country.
