In the News And thus, our true colours reveal. Since Obama was the young newcomer, technically savvy, many of us were hoping that he might support patent and/or copyright reform. In case our story earlier on this subject didn't already tip you off, this certainly will: Obama has sided squarely with the RIAA/MPAA lobby, and backs ACTA. No copyright and/or patent reform for you, American citizens!

I don't know how much either one of them is actually to blame but I've heard two possible causes.

The older theory; before they get into office, they promise to balance the budget. After they get into office, they get to actually see the budget and realize they are screwed.

The newer theory; people want change provided they don't have to be involved. Everyone tells there friend that the health care system is a mess but no one tells the local representative. Because no one is taking there active part in the government; the politicians only hear the opinions of the lobbyists who do take an active part in it. The Off The Wall radio show has had a couple of good rants about this particular issue.
