As usual, Congress has its priorities in order. Whatever it takes to support the 1%, you can count on Congress to be there with open hands. Somehow when it comes to supporting the 99% neither party can muster up enough energy to ever get serious. The crumbling middle class is an afterthought but for Congress - both parties - the middle class are a bunch of chumps who keep voting for the same crowd. It's no surprise that Americans dislike Congress so much and want to see them all voted out. TechDirt on the SOPA debate:
Despite the fact that Congress was supposed to be out of session until the end of January, the Judiciary Committee has just announced plans to come back to continue the markup this coming Wednesday. This is rather unusual and totally unnecessary. But it shows just how desperate Hollywood is to pass this bill as quickly as possible, before the momentum of opposition builds up even further.
