In a sign of complete disconnect and breakdown between politicians and the people they are supposed to represent, the German parliament has just backed the expansion of the European bail-out fund.
523 politicians voted in favor of it, 85 opposed, three abstained.That is 85.6% in favor.
However, a poll released yesterday showed that 75% of Germans opposed any new bailout measures. The WSJ reports: "A poll for national German broadcaster ZDF earlier this month shows three-quarters of Germans are against the expanded European rescue fund that's subject to Thursday's vote."
