You may or may not be following races other than in your home area. You may or may not of heard of Thad Cochran R, Senator from Mississippi.
He is personally and politically exactly what is wrong with this country. He has been getting his piece of other peoples pies for so long he does not want to give it up. How bad does he not want to give it up?
So bad that he is asking donrats to vote for him in Repub runoff election he lost to TEA Partier Chris McDaniel. Incumbents have a very strong history of losing runoffs in Mississipi. Thaddy boy is scared that share of his pie will be reduced in the future. So scared that all that federal money will not be his to play with anymore.
Reduce spending? Nah never, reduce taxes to make everyone prosper, how dare you! Get the fed out of Mississippi as much as possible? Heathen!!!!.
Thaddie boy and Haley Barbour and and all his ilk are what is wrong. People want their share of a shrinking pie instead of baking any new ones.
The gope can go efff itself.
