That too is human nature: the desire to have more for yourself. Take modern America as an example. Sure its still a great place to live, and the majority of the population has that place to sleep and something to eat. BUt the way our corrupted government has been using us and pretty much taking our money for themselves and their campaign supporters means that we could have a lot more. Sure we have those things, but who's to say they won't be here tomorrow (just like the jobs)?
Hence my prior statement. This has come to be in America, but the only people who truly get what they want are the government and their funders because they simply don't care about anyone else, they just want more money, and so the funders of the politicians get their way because they basically pay the congressmen and representatives to get what they want done. Of course no government has ever been perfect but its pretty obvious that America's (and a few of the rest of the world's) governments are running rampant with corruption and egotistical politicians.
Ah, but you see this is the beauty of a Democratic Republic like the United States of America!
It is the primary duty of a Representative to make sure their constituents are content with the job they are doing, else they will be voted out of office and thus be worthless to the lobbyist trying to use them.
Hence there is a metaphorical tightrope they must walk, a crucial balancing act one must perform between the interests of themselves, their lobbyist, and their constituents.

I would like to know as well.
EDIT: okay, what's the T?
Well the "t" is the first letter of "the", it's just the subject line takes the last few letters off when it adds the "Re:" bit.
