gov’t by the people

Here’s a follow-up to my earlier post on “this administration’s budget priorities”:http://www.globalspin.com/mt/archives/000499.html. A recent “PIPA study”:http://www.globalspin.com/mt/archives/000499.html shows that most Americans have similar budget priorities, but those priorities are very different from the budget proposed by the President and Congress.

_├ČThe American public as a whole takes a fairly coherent position. They favor redirecting a portion of defense spending to deficit reduction and social spending and look for savings by cutting spending on large-scale Cold War style capabilities…├«_

Fancy that. We all agree, red-staters and blue-staters alike. So why aren’t our representatives being representative?
