Congress Legislating in the Public Interest

Almost all of us have grown up in an era where the concept of Congress "looking out for the public good" has been taken for granted. This umbrella of protection seems natural and we assume it has always been there and will continue on into the future for our children to enjoy. But in reality it began with a series of supreme court rulings in 1937. But now the Bush administration is working to overturn this idea and return us to a pre 1937 reality wherein the government sees as its mandate to promote and protect big business. We are truly entering a dark time.
