Think about this: would billionaire businessmen spend several hundred million dollars if they didn’t expect to get something worthwhile in return? Presumably they didn’t get wealthy by throwing their money away. This is not an issue of party or wealth, but of the basic idea of democracy. When two men think that they can effectively buy the government policy they want, where does that leave the rest of us? Simple, our concerns go unanswered.
Next time someone tries to tell you that government doesn’t work, remind them that for those who can pay it works quite well. We urgently need change it the state and federal governments and our elected officials need to be held accountable.
