Americans suffered a severe disappointment with the recent defeat of a weakened gun control bill, despite 90 percent public approval. Voters rightly blame Congress for ignoring their own constituents' wishes.
However, the real problem was money that bought many legislators. Who had the big bucks to oppose the people? The National Rifle Association, of course.
When you consider how difficult it is to get our Congress to pass legislation that benefits the common people, and how easy it is to grant special privileges to the wealthy and big business, it makes you wonder who is running the country.
