Reaction to Daschle nomination ending
Democrats are corrupt, too. Washington, DC, is where billions of dollars flow and a handful of people handle the goods, and it's a cash business -- skimming allowed.
Daschle got his hand caught in the cookie jar. When he lost his senate seat, he could have worked for the public good, but instead he got paid $2.1 million dollars for a lobbying firm which surely represented some kind of health care big business. Why didn't he do something good for the public instead of cashing in, Trent Lott-style? The corruption goes so high my olfactory sense has died.
And "missing" $140,000 in taxes? They put regular folks in jail for that, steal our paychecks, make our life hell. Daschle will either step back into the lobbyist role or take a minor role in the Obama Administration (the former more likely than the latter). Our system is corrupt, and that's why we elected Obama. Find all the Abramoffs regardless of party affiliation. And find and remove the politicians hiring prostitutes, and torturing, and breaking any law. We put people away for smoking marijuana, but the politicians don't even pay their taxes.
