Look Who’s Buying American Democracy

How much more evidence do we need that our system is in crisis? How long before we make it work for all of us instead of a handful at the top? We must not let them buy our democracy. We must get big money out of politics. Publicly-finance political campaigns, disclose all sources of campaign funds, and reverse “Citizens United.”

Interesting but no a good idea! There should be reasonable term limits, however. Senators, Representatives and Supreme Court Justices need to be limited in reasonable ways. US presidents should also not get income for life and those expensive benefits that most of them do not deserve and do not need! Big things need to be done, but the people who have the power to do those will not do it. Good luck to the others in this country that claims to have liberty and justice for ALL. Bring it on!\

if you don't think that immigration is a problem come to Puerto Rico where the Dominicans have taking almost all the small businesses, its almost all Dominicans all over the place our traditions are hardly heard its now bachata and merengue, they have a strong pull in our government and you can't say anything because your treated as a racists that's our isla del encanto which is now isla del quisqueya

and this is something our cheating politicians will deny, because they are selling our nation out like our jobs lets take back our jobs and nation

Well, Mr. Reich, since all this money from the 158 families is pouring onto the coffers of Hillary and Jeb and so on, you should be promoting Donald Trump as president, since he has taken no money from super pacs and does accept donations from people, and does not appear in the least to be asking for big donations.

EVERY elected office at EVERY level of government should be for a single term. Unfortunately this won't happen because the career politicians don't want to do real jobs.
