    So, just who do you think does run the government?
    Politicians, political appointees and bureaucrats, obviously.

    And who elects the politicians who then appoint the political appointees who hire the bureaucrats?

    Doesn't matter. People have choices limited by the political parties. Voters do not run the government either. Politicians, political appointees and bureaucrats do.

    Btw, the DOW has dropped over 300 points today.

    For the record, on December 31, 2013 the DOW closed at 16,576.73.

    Right now it is 16,569.33.

    So it's down for the year, so far.

    Are you discounting the influence of money on these politicians, appointees and bureaucrats?

    average GDP growth in a health economy will be 3-6% in a year.
    a recession recover should see a gdp growth of 7-10%.

    the fact that we are just now reaching 4% says that the overall health of the economy is bad more so if it gets reduced which more than likely it will.

    No, I didn't suggest for a minute that they are free of corruption. In fact, I consider them corrupt to the point of disability.

    Correct, and the money comes from the wealthy corporations, mainly.

    So, who is really running things in Washington?
