In the world of politics, it would seem that spines don't serve their owners well. In reality, the reform bill we will get is this way because the men and women in power and able to attain power are often those with questionable, but powerful allegiances whose personal interests are not well served by biting the hands that feed them.

Given that the "democracy" in the US is one fed by considerable dollars, it is not at all surprising which people are in power; those able to drum up support from those who have dollars. To really change this, we would need a new kind of democracy and that is not coming anytime soon so collective grassroots efforts for change are the next best thing.
