    Mary Jo White and the Incestuous Mutually Beneficial Relationship Between Regulators and Wall Street

    Its not ideology that is killing our democracy. It is the revolving door between govt/regulators and big business. It is the huge sums of money that goes into campaigns and the favors they receive in return. Until we get real campaign finance reform which takes all the private money out of elections (PUBLIC FINANCING IS THE ANSWER) our democracy will continue to suffer.
