    This whole program is nothing more than the upper echelons discussing what they are going to do to their followers. Don’t you realize that you cannot see what is happening in government from the White House. You need some distance to get any perspective. What you are talking about is the inner workings of a congress that has no intent of representing the people. They are only interested in having the presidents, and those who gave them the most, backs. This program is lying to people who need to hear the truth.
