Since Buying This Election Didn’t Work, Will Big Business Give Up on Buying Elections?

NOPE, argues Robert Reich: “You see, if and when they eventually win, these billionaires will clean up. Their taxes will plummet, many of laws constraining their profits (such environmental laws preventing the Koch brothers from more depredations, and the anti-bribery Foreign Corrupt Practices Act that Adelson is being investigated for violating) will disappear, and what’s left of labor unions will no longer intrude on their bottom lines. And they have enough dough to keep betting until they eventually win. That’s what it means to be a billionaire political investor: You’re able to keep playing the odds until you get the golden ring.”

Um What Is the Point of Being Rich if You Aren’t Going to Try to Buy the Election?!?

Richard Rushfield did some INVESTIGATIVE REPORTING and found out that YOU have probably given more money to Barack Obama than some famous rich folks who have been campaigning for him.
