about all this special interest money that floods
into politics, we dont know where its coming from,
we dont know who is behind it and that its having
too much of an influence on our elections ;38 so i
think its important that these issues are looked into
and that our laws are being upheld :45

for me i dont get distracted by that, whether its
good or bad or somehwere in between, i leave that
up to people who follow this to follow that closely

the end people want me to do which is the focus on
the economic and fiscal issues that are of concern
