Change doesn't come easy -- or cheap

Hats off to the Globe's Chris Rowland for taking a look at the reason why change has come so abysmally slow in climate change, health care and financial reform.

Can you imagine what good could have been done with the $1 billion spent (through October) to stymie changes -- particularly in the financial industries responsible for the Great Recession?

Shows how much easier it is to buy a politician (can you say Joe Lieberman?) than it is to do good work.

It also reinforces that until "regular" people can get a voice in government as loud organizations with money to burn that Congress will continue to spin its wheels as we slip backwards down the Hill.
