Corporate profits vs profitable politicians

There is no greater myth in politics than the idea that legislators are somehow any less driven by money than CEO's.

Again with your pedistal. Do you honestly believe people become morally superior once they get in office?

Do you suppose $$ suddenly becomes less interesting to the man who is elected office over the CEO who runs a business?

Those that don't have a safety net still own the decision to do something about their situation. Ask friends for help, ask family for help, church,neighbors, raise money, pan handle, going into debt is an option, face the pain, face certain death. Whatever it is, we are all always responsible for our own lives which is scary if you have no faith in yourself or your neighbors (but you might be surprised how charitable people are when there isn't a gun pointing at their head.)
