    All they did was level the playing field with unions, that can allow each local to be a different contributing entity.

    If the voters didn’t choose their candidates the way they choose their toothpaste the money wouldn’t make that much difference.

    Lalo, I can agree with you on this one. Just make sure the complaint covers both ends of the political spectrum.

    It means that a conservative candidate with no money can get the backing to challenge liberal scumbags who aere back by hundreds of millions from labor uinions.

    So, what’s the Progressive left’s alternative? Public financing of campaigns? What could possibly be more onerous than people having to pay money to politicians and causes they disagree with or despise?
    .
    How about limiting contributions? That just means people use creative accounting to get around them.
    .
    It is better to let contributions be free but totally public and open to inspection. That way we know who is buying who…

    All the conservatives here assume that labor unions give more money than billionaire conservatives. Care to do a reality check on that one?

    You all know after 35 years of right-wing union-busting, they can’t hold a candle to a single Koch brother. Neither can a single George Soros compare to dozens of republican billionaires.

    @Kaffekup

    The Dem flavored Mega-PAC, Blue, was the leading contributor @ $100 Mil. Señor Soros swings a pretty mean checkbook as well. The Koch Bro’s are actually down the list, not at the top. All these folks, on both ends of the spectrum, are exercising their legal rights. I don’t think contributions should have no limit.

    We are the 99%—- that means we have the votes to elect people who will actually represent middle class workers and provide a safety net for those who are trying to get into the middle class.We all need to know who is supporting the candidates. That is who they will be working for. They have no choice if they want to stay in office. You have to do the bidding of whoever who is paying your way, just the same as we all do in our jobs. So, before going to vote, look it up on the internet. Open Secrets is a good site, but there are plenty.If the candidate is getting their money from small donors or from unions, they are going to be working for middle class working people. If their donations are from corporationsor from 1%ers, don’t figure they are going to go against them and do anything for the middle class.It would be political suicide.

    I just got a short email from Barry Soetoro. He says he agrees with you completely. He had to keep it brief because he was boarding Air Force One for another $35,000 meet-and-greet. (No press allowed.) And he wants to thank you and all the little people for their unquestioning support.

    One wonders why we ever left the smoke-filled back rooms.
