The money will continue to flood into their war chests and after a few months they'll be bought and paid for just like the current crop of Congressional jackasses. As long as special interest groups are allowed to buy influence, we will have no action from Congress that is in the best interest of the country as a whole.
While i don't disagree with most of your points, in fact i very much agree as it relates to the under lying cooroption that exists in Washington, but where's'your hope? I am optimistic a new administration and some new blood in the Senate will result in progress and hopefully reform; to what degree is anyone's'guess. Special interest groups have been apart of our political landscape for a long time and it's'not just Wallstreet, and i do not expect that is going to change anytime soon - unfortunatley. I still have faith in the our country and most of its' citizens, albeit that's'been waning lately, they will send the message this election cycle and if not, the next and so on...
